COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 and the racial equity movement have increased the urgency for social mission in health professions education – to address diversity, equity, and inclusion in education, to produce graduates to care for our highest-need communities, and to train future health equity and social justice leaders.

While the in-person conference has been a critical part of advancing the social mission, we also recognize the realities of COVID-19 are making a large, in-person meeting in the Spring inconsistent with our public and community health priorities.

The Beyond Flexner Alliance, A.T. Still University, and the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University are very pleased to announce that we will continue to partner and co-host the next 2022 Beyond Flexner Conference in-person in Phoenix, AZ. We will follow the safest CDC guidelines at the time of the conference. We are continuing to monitor the CDC’s recommendations regarding COVID precautions for conference attendees. Therefore, at this point, we are requesting that all attendees plan to wear masks in accordance with current CDC recommendations. Should there be any modifications to CDC recommendations, we will modify conference expectations accordingly.

Thank you for all that you do to advance the social mission. It’s clear our work is important, and we look forward to seeing you in-person in 2022.
