Welcome to the interim website for LAMPHHS (pronounced "LAMPS"; formerly ALHHS/MeMA)! A task force has
secured but not yet activated the domain
name "lamphhs.org" and is selecting a design firm to create a new, more aesthetic website.
Please save the date for our LAMPHHS 2020 Annual Meeting, taking
place virtually/remotely on May 7th and May 8th in the afternoons (Eastern Time).
This virtual conference is FREE and open to all our current, due-paying members. Our Program Committee, chaired by Rachel Ingold,
worked with presenters to set up the final schedule. Most presentations will be live; several were pre-recorded.
We recognize you all may not be able to attend every session, be we hope many of you can join us as much as you can.
The Zoom link(s) will be posted to the society's new listserv, LAMPHHS-L, to which all members are subscribed.
