WEEKLY COMMUNITY CALL MEETINGS
Please join us Tuesday, Dec. 7 (11 am ET) for our next OHDSI community call, when we reflect on 2021. Where did we succeed? Where did we fall short? What progress came from our workgroups? How can we improve in 2022?
Many of you will have the calendar link in your OHDSI Teams environment. If not, you will need the specific meeting link to access the community call; it will also be posted in the main OHDSI Teams environment. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.
