Welcome to the ASPHS home page!

IMPORTANT UPDATE!  The Toronto conference is postponed to next spring.

After a number of discussions between the Board and the hosts at York University over the last few weeks, and taking into account the severity of the situation, ASPHS regretfully has decided to postpone our upcoming April meeting in Toronto. We did not take this action lightly. Having received a number of cancellations already due to coronavirus concerns, we simply determined that the risks outweighed the gains. Therefore, we will push back our meeting one year and come together in Toronto in April 2021. Your registration fees will be refunded automatically – if you don’t receive an email from ASPHS confirming your refund in the next week, please get in touch with Jodi Campbell at j.campbell@tcu.edu. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact ASPHS president Scott Eastman at seastman@creighton.edu.

Regarding 2021 sessions and speakers, we will send more information out later this year.
