AcademyHealth’s Interest Groups (IGs) will hold their Annual Pre-Conference Sessions before the Annual Research Meeting (ARM) on Saturday, June 23. Individuals can attend up to two half-day sessions or one full day session. Registration also includes the IG Poster Session. The IG sessions have been slotted based on the likelihood of intersecting members.

Join your peers in an intimate setting to exchange knowledge, disseminate research findings, inform policy and clinical decision-making, build research skills, and network with those sharing common goals.
