NIAMS Director Discusses Coalition Outreach and Education Day
Date: December 23, 2013
Dr. Stephen Katz, Director of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, summarized his experiences at the NIAMS Coalition Outreach and Education Day. The Coalition is a consortium of nearly 90 professional and voluntary organizations invested in the Institute’s programs. “Outreach and Education Day is our largest effort to connect with our key constituents, but it is only one of many such activities,” Katz said. “We involve Coalition members in several Institute-sponsored programs, such as scientific meetings and retreats, roundtable discussions, and listening sessions, where we address research needs and opportunities across the spectrum of diseases within the NIAMS portfolio.” Read more about Outreach and Education Day and check out the NIAMS December newsletter.
