Thursday, September 17, 2015
 
IMPAQ Health experts Dr. Daniel Weinberg and Dr. Stacy Farr have been appointed to 2015-2016 AcademyHealth Advisory Committees for Interest Groups (IG).
 
IGs are governed by an Advisory Committee consisting of experts in the field, both through a volunteer and nomination basis. AcademyHealth’s IG Advisory Committees plan and develop new programs for the year, including webinars and networking events, and cultivate discussion about interesting topics through discussion forums. They will also lead the planning and implementation of the IG meeting at AcademyHealth’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM) in June 2016 by spearheading the call for abstracts, developing connections with speakers and panelists for the meeting, finalizing topics for the meeting, and developing the agenda.
