Special Update!
The NTP Satellite Symposium: Pathology Potpourri, previously scheduled on Saturday prior to the STP Annual Symposium has moved to Sunday (AM), June 19, making June 19 the official start date of the meeting. Both the Career Development Workshop: Professional Visibility: The Toxicologic Pathologist’s Guide to Getting Out There, and CE Course: No Bones About It: Considerations for Bone Toxicity, Healing, and Remodeling Studies, will also be held on Sunday (PM), June 19. Three other CE courses will be held virtually this summer and fall, offering abundant opportunities for receiving requisite accreditation credits. Please check the Annual Symposium website for updates.

Don’t forget to secure your hotel accommodations!
The Symposium and Exhibition will be held at the new Austin Marriott Downtown, just 12 minutes from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). Reserving your room at the official hotel better positions STP to secure appropriate meeting space for the annual symposium. STP has reserved a block of rooms at negotiated rates for the convenience of all our attendees. Reserve your accommodations by May 20.

Health Alert!
STP is committed to the safety of our members and guests during the upcoming meeting. Please be aware that we are continuing to monitor and adjust our requirements based upon information from multiple sources. STP will follow all CDC guidelines related to COVID, as well as guidelines or mandates imposed by Travis County, the City of Austin, and the State of Texas. STP strongly encourages social distancing and masking in all indoor meeting spaces. In addition, STP will require all attendees to provide proof of vaccination via the CVENT Health Check app (available in June) and attest they are not experiencing any COVID-like symptoms and that, if they should during the course of the conference, they will self-isolate for the duration of the event. Further information on how to use CVENT Health Check app will be forthcoming in early June.

June is a wonderful time to enjoy Austin, a vibrant city known for its live-music scene, art exhibits, and award-winning food concessions, with lots of parks and lakes for hiking, biking, swimming, and boating.

We look forward to reconnecting with you in Austin.
