Please Join Us!
Brigham and Woman’s Hospital (BWH) is celebrating their first annual Research Day on Thursday November 15th, from 8:00 AM until 6:00 PM.
This is a day-long celebration of inter-specialty research at BWH. As such, a poster session, with presentations from over 150 physicians and researchers will be presented, and will be followed at 3:00 PM by a keynote address “The Century of the System” from Atul Gawande, MD, MPH. There is no cost for admission and breakfast is provided. This a very rare opportunity to be briefed on the state-of-the-art medical science and methods of various treatments by the research teams at BWH themselves.
