2021 DRS Annual Meeting Interest Form

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 virus, the DRS Executive Committee has made the decision to hold a virtual conference in place of the in-person conference, which was scheduled for March 9-12, 2021 in San Francisco. While we would very much like to meet in-person, your health and safety is our top priority. We acknowledge that many of our colleagues have experienced budget cuts and other restrictions, including travel, which may also limit onsite participation. For these reasons, it became very difficult to plan for an on-site meeting. By moving to a virtual conference, we can direct our energies proactively to making this a great experience for all of our attendees around the world.

In lieu of the in-person conference, we are planning to offer the 2021 program online. The virtual format will include invited speakers, as well as both oral and poster presenters. We are excited for the lineup of presentations, and we hope you enjoy them safely from home.

Looking ahead, we hope you will make plans to join us at the 2022 conference, being held March 14-17 at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We are also pleased to announce, we were able to secure the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco for the 2023 conference, being held March 14-17.

We hope you are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times, and we wish you well.

Nadine Connor, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
President, Dysphagia Research Society
