Postponement of 2020 Awards

As the 2020 ISRHML Congress has been postponed to the year 2021, the same will hold for Macy-Gyorgy and Erhlich-Koldovsky Awards, we will not be awarding for the year 2020, but will postpone until 2021 as well. 

COVID-19 and the ISRHML 2020 Conference

In view of the large and continuing global health risks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided not to hold the 20th International Congress of the International Society for Research in Human Milk and Lactation (ISRHML) as planned in August 2020.

This was a difficult decision. We carefully reviewed all options, but it became clear that we needed to change our plans, considering the necessity of ensuring the safety and well-being of all attendees of this international meeting, and the continuing travel restrictions around the world.
We have therefore chosen to postpone the congress by one year.

The 20th International Congress of ISRHML will thus now instead be held on 16 – 20 August 2021 at the same venue; Aula Medica, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.
