If you can no longer attend the conference, you may request a refund of your registration fee. If you cancel prior to August 15, 2022, your registration costs will be refunded less a $20 processing fee. If you cancel after August 15, 2022, you will not be guaranteed any refund, therefore after August 15, 2022 we recommend finding a substitute to attend in your place. Substitutions may be made through August 30, 2022. You must contact for any cancellations or substitution requests.


A boxed lunch will be provided for participants registered in the Rural Topic and ATLS Refresher courses during the pre-conference training day.
