The switch to a virtual Symposium has required open minds and flexibility – and we are grateful to everyone who supported us this year and last. But we miss seeing you and are hopeful that we can gather together in-person in coming years. We also want to be mindful of health concerns and uncertainties with travel bans. So we created a survey to understand the factors that might influence your ability to come to an in-person Aurora Institute Symposium in 2022 and 2023.

Please help us by taking our survey by November 10!
