With the current uncertainties surrounding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) we have decided to cancel this conference at MSU. We are committed to promoting family nursing, simulation and technology expertise. Our future endeavors include developing pre-recorded educational webinars that may be viewed asynchronously by individuals who wish to learn more about simulation, technology and support of families. We are hopeful that you are understanding of this decision as we all navigate this uncertain time.

Theme: This conference will focus on the use of simulation and technology to advance family and societal health. Topics of interest will include research, education, and practice initiatives within a variety of disciplines.
