Dear NNVAWI Member,

The 20th NNVAWI Conference will take place in less than three months on the beautiful Emory University Campus in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Conference Planning Committee and the Board of Directors is putting together an outstanding program of events, including a pre-conference workshop with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a breakfast for students to meet and network, opportunities to share your work and time to connect with old friends and to meet some new ones!

On behalf of the NNVAWI Board of Directors and the Conference Planners (Dr. Angela Amar and Dr. Ursula Kelly), I would like to say that we look forward to seeing you at the conference. Don't forget that early-bird registration ends February 1 and that rooms at a reduced conference rate are available at the Emory Conference Center Hotel. Information on the rooms reserved for the conference is available by clicking here.
