Confirmation of the coronavirus in the state of Ohio has led to public health concerns related to disease transmission. As a result, The Ohio State University has been proactively implementing protocols for ensuring the safety and health for our students and clientele.
After consultation with the college and university leadership, the 2020 East Ohio Women in Agriculture Conference to be held March 19, 2020 in Massillon has been cancelled. Recognizing that our attendees are located around the state, we are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health, and the university in being aggressively proactive to prevent the potential spread of communicable respiratory illness.
All registered participants and speakers have been contacted. We are working to set a date for 2021 and will let you know as soon as it is confirmed.
