Submit Abstract: Poetry + Medicine Conference, Oviedo, Spain. 15th May 2020

12th March 2020: Urgent notice re Oviedo Conference

We have now heard from our Oviedo, Spain partner in this year's Hippocrates Awards Conference – due to be held on 15th May 2020 –  that the Oviedo University's Humanities Department will be closed from this weekend. An announcement is expected to be made soon that Oviedo University will be closed entirely, as other universities in Spain have already been.

In view of these developments, it now seems certain that we shall have to announce the postponement of the Oviedo conference. We shall confirm this formally when we have more details from Oviedo.

This does not affect the Hippocrates awards themselves or timing of their announcement.
