AMS and COVID-19

Last Updated 30 November 2020

On behalf of the AMS Council and staff, I would like to extend our sincere sympathy to anyone impacted directly or indirectly by the novel coronavirus, and gratitude to the healthcare workers and organizations battling this pandemic. For those members of the community required to be at their places of business for public safety, thank you and stay safe. As we all practice social distancing in an effort to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and its potential strain on our healthcare systems, we’ve created a list of helpful AMS resources that you can access online.

How to Reach AMS Staff?

Please contact us the same ways as always. In most cases, email is the best way to reach us. If you are trying to reach a staff member by phone and reach voicemail, leave a message! It will be delivered to us via email, and we will respond when we are able.

Special Spring 2021 Opportunity for Teachers

Thanks to our sponsors, NOAA and Lockheed Martin, we have a special one-time opportunity for teachers: we are waiving all course fees for the first 25 participants that are successfully matched to a mentor team for each of the three online Spring 2021 DataStreme courses (75 waivers total)! Participants will still earn three accredited graduate credits per course. 
We are pleased to support teachers who, as we all know, are going through a very challenging year. Fill out the DataStreme Interest Form now to learn more about this offer and get matched with your mentor for the spring semester.
