ANNOUNCEMENTS
Happy Independance Day!  In the name of freedom, there will be no OHDSI community call or CDM workgroup meeting this week. The next CDM workgroup meeting will be next Tuesday, July 11th at 1pm.

Hadoop Hack-A-Thon – Our first Hadoop Hack-A-Thon was a great success! Join in next week’s community call to hear all about it. In the meantime, check-out photos from the event:

Call for Sponsorship – To fund the 2017 symposium we need to raise $200K to cover operating costs of venue rental, lunch, audio/visuals and recordings fees. We’re reaching out to the entire community for sponsors who want to support this important event and allow us to build upon the success of past symposia.
