The efforts of Alan Hoberman and the Program Committee have resulted in an outstanding program for our 57th Annual Meeting. As we prepare to meet in Denver in June, we must also turn our attention to the planning of the next annual meeting in Clearwater, Florida, in June 2018. At this time, I would like to solicit input from the general membership regarding scientific sessions and educational topics.
The Program Committee for the 2018 Annual Meeting will review the suggested proposals for sessions prior the meeting in Denver. This approach will help ensure coverage of cutting-edge research, clinical-epidemiological translation, and regulatory-policy aspects that are important to the various sectors of the Teratology Society.
I invite and encourage you to contribute your ideas for the 2018 meeting. If there is a topic of interest to you for which you don’t have a full session proposal fleshed out, I would encourage you to still submit it for consideration. We will try to identify members to help develop those ideas more fully.
I look forward to your input.
