The Board of the Fredrickson Lipid Research Conference looks forward to seeing you at the University of Kentucky for the 2021 Conference.
A Note on COVID Safety Protocols
The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. The University of Kentucky Planning Committee as well as the Board for the Fredrickson Conference are carefully monitoring the situation with the Delta variant along with the recommendations from national, state and local entities.
Currently, the University of Kentucky Health Care Colleges are reporting over 93% of its employees are fully vaccinated. The vast majority of local attendees are from this group. All other attendees are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated.
A number of measures have been taken to reduce the likelihood of spread during the conference.
Masking is required for conference attendees during each scientific session and poster session regardless of vaccine status.
The venues for the didactic portions of the Fredrickson and UK Cardiovascular Research Day are well-ventilated and will not exceed 50% of normal room occupancy.
Additional busses are available for the transport of attendees between the Conference Hotel and the UK Student Center. If guests are more comfortable walking, the estimated walk time is 14 minutes (0.7 miles). A map is available in the Online Abstract Book.
Additional busses have been ordered for transportation to the KY Castle on Thursday evening. There is ample, free parking at The Castle for those who prefer to drive.
