2017 OHDSI Symposium Accommodation – This year’s symposium will take place at the Bethesda North Marriott, just outside Washington DC. If you’d like to stay at the Marriott during the symposium we suggest booking your stay as soon as possible. October is a busy month in DC.

Call for Sponsorship – We’re almost at our goal of $200K to fund this year’s symposium! So far we’ve raised $150K of the funds needed to cover operating costs of venue rental, lunch, audio/visuals and recordings fees. We’re still looking for sponsors to support this important event. If you’re interested in sponsorship check out our forum post for more details: http://forums.ohdsi.org/t/ohdsi-symposium-2017-call-for-sponsorship/2730?u=maurabeaton

Updating OHDSI.org – Over the next couple months we’ll be updating collaborator profiles and our data network list. If you have updates you’d like made to your OHDSI profile, or have updated information about your database, please email beaton@ohdsi.org with the changes.
