2020 OHDSI APAC Symposium

The first-ever OHDSI APAC Symposium was held Dec. 5-6, 2020, and it provided an opportunity for our Asia-Pacific collaborators (along with others around the world) to share research, provide community updates, collaborate in regional breakouts or network discussions, and have some OHDSI fun.
