Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Medical Alley Association does not have any in-person events scheduled at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and stay in touch with leaders in government and healthcare to ensure that if we do plan an in-person event, we are doing so in the most responsible way possible. 

We encourage you to check back here often for updates and to register for upcoming virtual events.
