ADSA/ASAS Northeast Regional Meeting: SAVE THE DATE!

Save the Date!

WHO: Researchers, educators, graduate students, and postdocs in the Northeast

WHAT: Regional meeting of the Northeast Section of ASAS and Branch of ADSA

WHEN: March 23-24, 2018

WHERE: University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT

The NE ADSA/ASAS Executive board is co-hosting a regional meeting in collaboration with the NERA Planning meeting “Poor maternal nutrition and its impact on neonatal outcomes.” A tentative schedule of events is below, which includes speakers focusing on maternal programming and speakers from the Northeast Region. The NE ADSA/ASAS will hold its annual business meeting on Saturday. We invite posters for presentation at an informal poster session on Friday evening following dinner. Please feel free to bring posters and data published elsewhere to share, as this is a networking event and abstracts will not be formally published. Graduate students presenting posters will receive a travel scholarship to help defray the costs of travel. Registration and additional details will be available soon. Please contact Sarah Reed (sarah.reed@uconn.edu) with any questions.
