Events

Our Workshops are designed to provide specialized professional development in a live (often virtual) format with a keen focus on interaction and Q&A (as opposed to lecture only). Specialized clinicians, pathologists, and others interested in the topics are invited to join! Due to the focus on live interaction, workshops are not recorded. If you are unable to attend our events due to scheduling, please let us know so we can adjust. 

Our community-building efforts consist of Focus Forums and social events that will bring together clinicians and pathologists to share their perspectives, address challenges, promote solidarity, and have fun.
