In-Person Experience Only

IThe 2023 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo is taking place exclusively on-site in Nashville, Tennessee.

There will be no live online or virtual element of the meeting. As an added benefit, registrants will be able to access recordings of all Featured and Scientific Sessions through the SOT Online Planner and the SOT Event App within 24 hours of a session’s conclusion, but these sessions will NOT be livestreamed. Poster Sessions will not be recorded, but authors can make their posters available electronically for viewing on the SOT Online Planner and the SOT Event App.

As an add-on activity, recordings of the Continuing Education courses will only be available to course registrants or those who enroll in CEd-Tox, the Society’s Continuing Education online courses program, after the meeting’s conclusion.
