Safety Measures for Future Encore Anesthesia Conferences During COVID-19

Moving forward with In-Person Conferences beginning March 2021

Encore is hosting in-person Spring and Fall 2021 conferences unless conditions prohibit an in-person conference. Either way, we have you covered! Based on the fluid situation with the pandemic, Encore's meetings will be offered simultaneously as a Live Virtual Conference, accessible in the classroom, hotel room, in your home, or virtually anywhere! Extra measures will be taken for those who gather in the conference area. The recommended 6-foot, social distancing will be in place. Each attendee is required to wear a face mask during the pandemic. Hand sanitizer and bottled water daily will be provided by Encore. Each hotel/resort has implemented enhanced sanitation protocols throughout the property to meet the CDC and state department guidelines.

Encore Virtual Conferences are NOT pre-recorded and can be tailored to meet your CE Credit needs! Simply uncheck the days that you are unable to attend or contact us directly at (336) 768-9095. ES representatives are standing by to personally customize your learning experience.
