The 2022 Symposium Closing Talk was provided by Patrick Ryan (Johnson & Johnson, Columbia University), who discussed the theme of Building A Healthier World Together, and how the OHDSI community can collaborate to achieve that goal. He focused on the scientific practices that can help this aim, but he also discussed the critical value of teamwork. That led to the first-ever OHDSI Lego Challenge, as well as a memorable lego stop-motion video (58:35 in the presentation).
This talk opened with the announcement of the 2022 Titan Award recipients. The Titan Awards are awarded annually to individuals or teams within the OHDSI community who have made significant contributions towards advancing OHDSI’s mission, vision and values.
