WEEKLY COMMUNITY CALL MEETINGS
Happy #OHDSI2022 Symposium Week!
Please join us Tuesday, Oct. 11 (11 am ET) for an opportunity to hear about — and promote your own — collaborator showcase research at the 2022 OHDSI Symposium! We will also share any final details and answer questions about this weekend’s symposium.
Do you want to promote your poster or software demo during the “Mad Minutes” community call, the last one before the symposium? Sign up now, and we will give as many collaborators as possible 60 seconds to tell the community why they should visit you during the Collaborator Showcase.
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.
