The 9th annual conference was a great success! The conference was held Friday, September 28th at McDonald’s Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL and featured 3 morning plenary sessions and 7 afternoon breakout sessions. One of the highlights of this year’s conference was hearing from Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust Survivor, who delivered an emotionally charged speech about her experience as a research subject in Dr. Mengele’s twin studies. Other keynote speakers included Greg Feero, MD, PhD, who spoke about genome discoveries and personalized medicine, and Antonia Villarruel, PhD, FAAN, who discussed how to engage communities in research. The conference also featured 11 exhibitors. Once again, demand for the conference was high with the conference reaching maximum capacity in the weeks prior to the event. Attendees represented four states and 34 different organizations representing clinical sites, industry, and academia.
