Society for Pediatric Pathology

Perinatal Pathology Course
Chicago, Illinois, USA

Dear SPP Friends,

In light of the mounting concerns regarding public safety due to COVID-19, as well as the demands our members are facing in their own institutions and communities and related travel restrictions, SPP Leadership has come to the difficult decision that we must postpone the 2020 Perinatal Pathology Course scheduled for April 17-19, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.

While we cannot come together in-person this April, we have a team of volunteers working hard on offering this meeting at a later date (TBD). We will be in contact in the coming weeks with additional information about the new date/time for the 2020 Perinatal Pathology Course.

Again, thank you for continued support for SPP.

Best regards,

Linda Ernst, Director of the Perinatal Pathology Course
Gino Somers, President, Society for Pediatric Pathology
