What’s New at GRAPPA

GRAPPA Annual Meeting & Trainee Symposium Update (4/22/2020)

GRAPPA is converting the in-person Annual Meeting to a virtual/online meeting this year due to the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic. While GRAPPA prefers the in-person meeting format to encourage networking and collaboration, the safety of all involved is paramount. The agenda planning for the online meeting is continuing and we are actively researching the virtual platform that will be used to present the sessions to our members and sponsors on the same dates, July 10-11. Satellite meetings (CRN, PRP, IDEOM) will likely be held virtually as well, but may be scheduled earlier (late June/early July). (Click here for entire announcement.)
