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.

Updating OHDSI.org – Over the next couple months we’ll be updating collaborator profiles and our data network list. If you have updates you’d like made to your OHDSI profile, or have updated information about your database, please email beaton@ohdsi.org with the changes.

To enjoy freedom we have to control ourselves.
