The Heal Ohio Conference

Cancellation of 2020 Heal Ohio and Columbus Networking Social due to COVID-19 Concerns

The Heal Ohio Conference Planning Committee, and BioOhio, have been closely monitoring the developments of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and we were sorry to learn this week that the reach of the virus has expanded to Ohio. The industry understanding of the potential reach of the virus has changed significantly in the past few days, making it impossible to accurately assess risk, thus many conferences around the country have been canceled. As the spread of COVID-19 continues to proliferate, we understand the virus poses a concern to many who planned to attend the 2020 Heal Ohio Conference: A Healing Experience and to the diverse organizations within our wound healthcare community.

Today, following the most recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with many organizations around the country, BioOhio has decided it is clearly necessary to cancel the 2020 Heal Ohio Conference and the Networking Social that was slated to follow the event.

The health and safety of our members and attendees remain of the utmost importance.

All attendee registrations will be automatically refunded back to attendees using the method of payment made at the time of registration. Attendees will begin to see this refund in their statements in 5-7 business days.

Heal Ohio Sponsors and Exhibitors will be contacted with further information regarding contracts and registrations. Please contact for immediate booth concerns. Any further updates regarding 2020 Heal Ohio Conference will be published here.
