SOPHE 2020 conference call for abstracts 

FYI the call for abstracts for the SOPHE 2020 conference, which will be held in Atlanta, Georga March 17-20 is expected to be released this month! So if any of you are interested in collaborating on a GH CoP roundtable start thinking about what you'd like to present on now. Our group roundtables have been well received in the past and it has been a fun collaboration for our group members. Even if you want to submit, but are unable to attend, another group member who is going can pair with you to cover the presentation on your behalf.
