LIVE from #IDWeek2020, it’s UNMC ID!

IDWeek is our premier Infectious Diseases conference, and we are excited about it all year long. This year the anticipation is no different, although the conference itself will be very different because of COVID-19. This year is completely virtual, with a full 24hrs of #ChasingTheSun COVID coverage starting October 21, 2020. Many presentations are pre-recorded so we can access them at our leisure; posters are virtual with recorded voice-overs; there will be live Q&A with presenters throughout the week; and a few live sessions not to be missed! With thousands of registrants, our social media feeds are sure to be filled with #IDWeek2020 and we are here for it!

We want you to know where you can find UNMC ID faculty and trainees this week presenting and moderating, and follow us on twitter at @UNMC_ID!
