About Bethesda

We are excited to host the 2023 conference in Bethesda, Maryland, minutes away from the nation’s capital and home to the country’s premier medical facility, the National Institutes of Health.

Bethesda, a metropolitan city, is accessible from both Dulles and Ronald Reagan Airports. The area is also a hub for private transportation options (i.e., Uber, Lyft, Taxi services) and a renowned metro bus and subway system. Getting here and around is easy.

Let’s Eat!

No matter your palate, Bethesda offers a superb dish for everyone. This popular area is full of diverse dining options such as the Woodmont Grill , Raku-An Asian Dining & Sushi , Guapo’s Mexican Restaurant , and Mon Ami Gabi . Sign-Up sheets will be on hand at the conference, allowing you and your colleagues to locate venues such as the ones noted above to gather, network, and enjoy what the city has to offer.

The Arts

Considered to be one of the most prosperous cities in the country, this vibrant town is filled with inspiring artists, galleries, and prominent entertainment venues including the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club which showcases famous musicians such as Kenny Lattimore, Keiko Matsui, and Deniece Williams.

Fashion Gems

Before you head back home, take in the many shopping options for souvenirs, keepsakes, or trendy purchases at unique locales such as Bethesda Row and Westfield Montgomery Shopping Mall

We look forward to seeing you in May!
