Elise and Linda in TS Booth at SOT 2018.jpgOn March 12-14, 2018, the Teratology Society exhibited at the ToxExpo as part of the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

Booth #1932 was the place to be - to catch up with old friends and make some new connections!

Thank you to the 24 members (listed below), ranging from student members to past presidents, who made this possible by volunteering their time to work in the booth and share their enthusiasm for the Teratology Society with attendees! Special thanks to Elise Lewis and Linda Roberts for taking time out of their busy schedules at SOT to make sure things were running smoothly in the booth throughout the event.
