13th Annual - Colorado Chapter of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) Conference -
CANCELLED AT THIS TIME
The COIDSA Board is committed to the health and safety of our attendees. While we are optimistic that COVID-19 will be contained, we want to exercise an abundance of caution and follow the lead of health officials and our very own experts. We also understand the strain on our own resources that make this conference difficult to hold at this time. For that reason, we are cancelling the COIDSA Annual Conference set to take place on April 17 and apologize for the inconvenience.
We plan to reconvene next month to see if the climate has changed and if perhaps we can reschedule for a date later in the Spring, if that is possible we will let you all know as soon as possible.
Learn and Network with Peers
Every year, the conference has grown. We are delighted to give you this local and regional opportunity to network with peers and colleagues in our industry, as well as to learn more about ongoing advancements in clinical, research and field settings.
Registration is open to both members and non-members of Colorado IDSA. Infectious disease fellows are encouraged to come as guests of the society; the normal registration fees are waived for fellows.
Susan Mason Education Fund
Susan Mason, MD – 1952 – 2016
Susan Mason was a prominent and respected member of the ID community starting during her fellowship at the University of Colorado from 1983-86. She was a partner with the Western Infectious Disease group until her retirement.
Susan Mason was well-recognized and well-regarded by her colleagues for her decency, respect for others, and commitment to quality of care and to quality of life.
She was dedicated to promoting ethical care, human rights and social justice both in medicine and in the community. She was active in a number of charitable organizations and was an enthusiastic and gifted teacher of ID principles to medical students. Susan was a founding member of the Colorado IDSA, again with the goal of bringing our ID community in closer contact and to better recognize and serve the needs of both practitioners and our patients.
In recognition of and gratitude for her ethical guidance and contributions to our community, the Colorado IDSA created the Susan Mason Education Award to support ID Fellow education so that she will stay with us in our memories and actions, advancing the values she promoted and lived.
