2021 Annual Meeting Notice and COVID-19 Statement

The Remington Winter Course in Infectious Diseases would like to thank to all of those on the front lines of the global novel coronavirus outbreak. 

We look forward to the opportunity to share findings and clinical experiences with COVID-19 and other infectious diseases soon.  WCID has closely monitored the situation and has now decided that our 2021 course will be virtual only.   We are currently evaluating different delivery formats and will update here as we make decisions.

It is our intention to re-convene in Vail in February 2022 and we are planning in that direction. 

Please watch this page for updated information on both the 2021 and 2022 Annual Meetings or let us know you would like to be notified of our progress by sending us an email.  Click here to be added to our notification list.



Please join us in congratulating our founder, Jack Remington MD on the Dr. Jack S. Remington Laboratory for Specialty Diagnostics, formerly known as the “Palo Alto Medical Foundation Toxoplasmosis Serology Laboratory.” An International Reference group for Toxoplasmosis, in Palo Alto, CA.
