We have received feedback from potential presenters for the 11th Academic & Health Policy Conference on Correctional Health who were affected by the hurricanes in Houston, Florida and Georgia that they are just getting back to be able to attend to their work. Given the historic nature of two Category 4 hurricanes making landfall and affecting our colleagues, we are making an exception to our customary deadlines and will extend the deadline for proposals until Thursday, September 21 at 9pm.
Some of you may be concerned about attending a conference in Houston in light of the damage the city has sustained, including the hotel. The hotel is projecting to be back up and running as normal in late October. Prospective presenters may want to consider the role they will play in helping the city recover by participating in and attending the conference. Conventions and tourism are significant contributors to Houston's economy, and will be even more critical to help the city move forward.
