To Our Very Valued NYSHS Membership,
Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global coronavirus pandemic has affected all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update the membership as to how we, the New York State Histotechnological Society, plans to move ahead.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts are especially with those who were sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.
During this unfortunate time, we cancelled our annual Spring meeting, as we were focused on the health and safety of our members, families and communities. We know that it is very important for us to provide our membership and our student members the opportunity to apply for and receive an educational scholarship as well as providing the opportunity to gain knowledge. We are very regretful that did not happen. We apologize for your disappointment and not being able to provide scholarships as our 2020 Spring meeting was cancelled. We will have something in place in the future to ensure that scholarships can be given out even if meetings are cancelled.
We are in the process of planning an in-person meeting in April of 2022. Our goal is to offer our membership educational opportunities and advancing histology as a profession. As we move forward, we will keep you updated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your continued support!
New York State Histotechnological Society President
