Is HSP more prevalent in certain ethnic groups?
There is no evidence that HSP is more prevalent in one ethnic group than another.
The recent tornado near Nashville, did not touch the hotel where our Annual Conference is scheduled. We realize that a lot of current conferences are being cancelled due to fears of the outspread of the Corona Virus. Please know that we are watching this very carefully. We promise that we will not put any of our community un-der any risk. There is still plenty of time to change our date or maybe even cancel our Annual Confer-ence if the situation requires it. In response to this crisis, Hilton Ho-tels is allowing anyone with a res-ervation to change or cancel it at any time without penalty, if our conference needs to be changed or cancelled.
