Covid-19 and Live Events

Due to the evolving risk associated with COVID-19 and out of concern for the well-being of our guests, Stanford will be moving forward cautiously with hosting in person events and classes this Fall following the guidance of local officials and that of the CDC. In-person events of large gatherings can be cancelled or changed to a virtual format at any time, and in person gatherings may have additional safety protocols in place that will be communicated prior to events.  We regret any inconvenience these changes may cause. For updates, please check your individual SMAA event on this website or contact our offices. Stanford University updates can be found at http://med.stanford.edu/covid19.

Racial Justice

As leaders of Stanford Medicine, we come to this time of tragedy, unrest, and reckoning with the Stanford School of Medicine's pledge against racism and violence against BIPOC. For additional alumni and campus resources on this issue, please visit the Stanford Alumni Racial Justice Resources page.
