Please join us for an open, town-hall style meeting on Thursday, May 16 at 11 eastern. Connection information is here: https://duraspace.zoom.us/j/952326581. We’ll fill you in on what we’re doing now and what we’re planning, so bring your questions about VIVO Scholar.

Future VIVO Scholar town hall meetings will be held roughly every 8 weeks at the same time: June 11, September 12, October 31, January 9, February 20

Hope to talk to you next week!
