A Virtual and in Person Conference (Hybrid)—May 24–27—To keep our organization’s momentum going, AHSRA officers and planning committee decided to hold a hybrid conference in 2023, hosted at Adventist University of Africa (AUA) Nairobi, Kenya.

We will work to schedule events and individual presentations to be feasible as far as possible to our different time zones.
