ANNOUNCEMENTS
2017 OHDSI Symposium Registration – Registration for this year’s symposium is filling up quickly. If you haven’t registered yet, we recommend you do so soon! Register here: https://www.ohdsi.org/symposium-registration/
PLEASE NOTE: Registration is for the main symposium only (set to take place on October 18th). Registration for tutorials is full.

Tutorial Registration – Tutorial registration is now closed. Selected participants will be notified this week that they have been accepted into their respective tutorial.

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. More details: http://forums.ohdsi.org/t/ohdsi-symposium-2017-call-for-sponsorship/2730?u=maurabeaton

Updating OHDSI.org – Leading up to the symposium, 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.

I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.
