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 underway for the same weekend of October 24-25, 2020.  This site remains the most comprehensive resource for details about those plans and other important information about this year’s HOD.
