To Our International Attendees:
We hope that the U.S. restrictions proposed earlier this year on travel and immigration will not impact your decision to attend Hot Topics. Our core beliefs as we design this conference each year are that we can make the lives of babies around the world better through the free and open exchange of ideas; that groundbreaking discoveries depend on collaboration across borders; and that the greatest leaps for our smallest patients can sometimes start with a chance conversation at a conference.
We hope that you will join us at Hot Topics, because all perspectives enrich the discussion about neonatal research. We encourage you to contact us for a letter of invitation and apply for a visa if needed as soon as possible to ensure the best possible chance of being able to attend. To contact us, please email email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you in DC.
