Please join us Tuesday, Oct. 18 (11 am ET) for a “Welcome To OHDSI” call, when we highlight what OHDSI is all about, and the many ways collaborators (both long-standing and new) can learn and make an impact in the 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.
