WEEKLY COMMUNITY CALL MEETINGS
Please join us Tuesday, July 12 (11 am ET) for our next OHDSI Community Call, which will be focused on new adopters of the OMOP CDM or new members of the OHDSI community. We are welcoming people to introduce themselves, share why they have joined the community and what impact they hope to make, and also ask a question to the broader community.
Everybody is invited. Calendar invites for our 2022 community calls go out each Friday. If you did not receive one, please use this link to join the meeting. All recordings from these weekly meetings will be posted on both our main OHDSI Teams tenant and on our OHDSI.org Community Calls page.
