Hi, my name is Mike Ho and I am the QCOR Membership & Communications Chair. The 2011 QCOR conference is being held this week in Washington DC from May 12 to 14. I just wanted to let the trainees and early career members know about the Career Development Lunch being held on Friday the 13th at noon. This will be an exciting event as the finalists for the Young Investigator Abstract Award will be announced at the lunch. The 5 finalists will be presenting their abstract in front of a panel of judges in a concurrent session earlier that day.
In addition, we will have two Congressional staff members who worked on the quality provisions contained in the Affordable Care Act speak during the lunch on, "Conducting policy related research." The two members are:
Stephen Cha, MD, MHS, Professional Staff, Committee on Energy and Commerce
Neleen Rubin, Consultant, Former Senate Finance Committee staff
If you have any questions that you would like to have answered by our panelists, please post them here and we will try to get them answered.
