OAAF Virtual Conference March 17, 2021 to June 30, 2021 via Zoom

Every Wednesday from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM there will be two or three presentations (1.5 hour workshops, 1 hour talks).

  • Presentation topics will, when possible, be grouped in sequences that reflect discipline specific interests (e.g. nursing issues presented on the same day).
  • There will be one keynote speaker presenting each month.

Cost: Free for all staff on OAAF member teams. ($300 per person for non-members).

Program will be available in February 2021.
