What is patient- and family-centered care?
2020 International Conference
Bringing Nashville to You…
Due to serious concerns about COVID-19 and IPFCC’s commitment to promoting safety for all, we have made the decision to shift to a fully virtual conference and cancel our in-person conference, originally scheduled to take place in Nashville, TN.
IPFCC’s virtual International Conference will include a 3-day kickoff from August 18-20, a dynamic Poster Gallery, and breakout sessions from August 25 – September 10. It will feature great content, interactive sessions, and opportunities to connect with fellow attendees. With the support of our leadership sponsor, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, we look forward to bringing the fun, uniqueness, and music of Nashville to you!
