In light of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the Pennsylvania Medical Society’s Board of Trustees made the difficult decision to cancel the face-to-face meeting of the 2020 House of Delegates in Hershey. Plans for an alternative remote meeting format are tentatively targeted for the same weekend of October 24-25, 2020.  Details are still being developed using possible virtual platforms with helpful input from a Speakers’ Advisory Panel.  Click Here to Read More
