340B COALITION VIRTUAL SUMMER CONFERENCE FAQ

Thank you for the heroic sacrifices many of you are making to battle the novel coronavirus disease. We have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and have made the decision that the 340B Coalition Summer Conference, originally scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C., from July 20-22, will become a virtual event held over five days between July 20-29. This decision is necessary to protect the safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff, which is our highest priority.

We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below. We will continue to add additional FAQs as more information becomes available.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION FAQ

With an ever increasing number of hospital employees on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was in the best interest of everyone to cancel the in-person meeting in Washington, DC and ensure our attendees are able to do what they do best – care for the nations poor and underserved populations. This decision was announced on May 13, 2020.

The decision to move to virutal allows us to provide you the same powerful agenda with the latest information not only about policy changes related to COVID-19, but other developments that will continue to affect the day-to-day operations of your 340B programs long after the pandemic has ended. The virtual conference will provide 50 sessions, three pre-conference workshops, and multiple interactive opportunities to network with 340B professionals and exhibitors.

We know you are busy so we have spread out the agenda into easy to consume time slots over five days spanning two workweeks. If you can’t attend live, most sessions will be available on-demand for at least 3 months so you can watch them at your convenience. See the agenda for more information on our new format and how it will fit into your busy work and home lives.

We also recognize the impact COVID-19 is having on your institutions’ financial situations and by moving to virtual, we have been able to reduce the registration fees by 30%. Your total cost of attendance will also be reduced because you won't have to pay for travel, lodging, and meals.

Continuing education credits will be available for both live and on-demand sessions.

TRAVEL AND HOTEL INFORMATION FAQ

The 340B Coalition would like to thank our partners at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham hotels for their cooperation and understanding of the COVID-19-related factors beyond our control that led to the decision to cancel our in-person event and move to virtual.
