We are looking forward to seeing you in Chicago this fall at our annual Chronic Disease Academy. Here’s an overview of what to expect as we finalize plans in the coming weeks as well as a few answers to some common questions that we have received to date.
Step 1: Register for Courses at the Academy
In early June, you will receive an email with instructions for registering for the Academy. This will be your opportunity to select specific sessions to attend. It also will initiate the process to allow you to be authorized to make travel plans. Each individual attending the Academy will need to register. View a brief, updated agenda to get a sense of the schedule, offerings, and social activities.
Step 2: Make Your Travel Arrangements
Within a few days after you register, you will receive another email confirming your travel authorization. This email will include instructions for booking your flight and making your hotel reservations (which are covered in your financial support package along with other travel expenses). It also will include ground transportation and per diem information.
  • As you plan for your travel arrangements, please note that the Academy begins Tuesday, August 30, at 8 a.m. CT. The Academy will close on Thursday, September 1, by 12:30 p.m. CT.
