Meeting Format

Because of meeting restrictions currently in place due to the coronavirus public health situation, CDS is offering our guest lecture and resident case presentations in the form of an online session via Zoom.  Participants will be able to ask questions, and you will be able to hear the speakers through your computer or by telephone.  You can ask a question by posting the chat box.
Following the "main" part of the conference, several breakout sessions may be offered providing the opportunity to have further discussion on particular topics, and to stay connected with your colleagues.  We hope you will find these sessions to be enjoyable.
CDS now offers attendees the option of viewing closed captioning during virtual meetings on Zoom  CLICK HERE for more information about this feature.
