The Cayman Heart Fund has postponed its annual international symposium, which had been scheduled for next week, amid travel warnings over coronavirus.
The symposium, which usually brings a number of international medical experts to Cayman, was due to be held on 19 March at the Margaritaville Beach Resort.
The Cayman Heart Fund said in a statement it has postponed the event because many institutions are cancelling their travel plans for non-essential overseas trips, which impacted the presenters and doctors scheduled to speak at the symposium.
The charity said the cardiovascular-disease awareness and edcuation event, now in its 13th year, attracts more than 160 attendees annually.
“We are confident in the next weeks that we can set a new date that will accommodate all parties and the event will be a success,” the Cayman Heart Fund said in its statement.
