Greetings to everyone during these trying times. It is clear enough at this point that international travel for conferences should continue to be avoided through the end of this year, at least. However, we have received many meaningful and excellent proposals, and many have commented on the continued and perhaps heightened importance of the health humanities in dealing with a global pandemic. Therefore, we have decided to move the conference to an online format. We plan to ask presenters to prepare videos of their presentations, which can be provided in an on-demand format (with discussion forum capabilities) to conference participants. We have also adjusted the participation fee for Categories B and C, in order to enable as much participation as possible. In the same vein, we have decided to extend the final Call for Papers until the end of June. So, if you were unable to attend because of the trip to Japan or to Tokyo, if you were waiting to see whether the conference would be cancelled or postponed, or if you are engaged in innovative new research or practice related to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, please, by all means, consider submitting a proposal this month. Together we can overcome this roadblock and make the first-ever online Health Humanities conference a great one!
