The CISCRP team is finally winding down after a very active fall season! The team held three AWARE for All events in three major cities: St. John’s University in New York City, Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, IL and the William and Ida Friday Center in the Triangle, NC. The results of the 2015 Perceptions & Insights study were unveiled with a webinar to discuss findings, and staff members have been busy presenting at conferences across the country.
I’m pleased to share that our staff is growing rapidly to support many exciting initiatives. This fall, we welcome four new members and two familiar faces to the CISCRP team. Audrey Birkett, Cynthia Korisky and Jennifer Clemens join Communicating Trial Results as Project Managers. Annick Anderson, Associate Director, Research Services, joins us full time, and Susannah Buzard, Special Programs Manager, returns to CISCRP after working in education. David Getz joins as the Finance and Operations Manager, and Bella Osmanov, UMASS Boston, joins CISCRP as our newest intern.
The 2nd Annual SCRS Run for the Heroes 5K in October marked our fifth Medical Heroes Appreciation 5K to be held in conjunction with a professional conference. Thank you to SCRS and DAC Patient Recruitment Services for their support. We are very excited for the two upcoming 5K events this spring at the ACRP 2016 Global Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, GA and the DIA 2016 52nd Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA. In addition, there will be a 5K Run/Walk at the ISPE Conference on November 9 to benefit CISCRP. Bring your colleagues and register for a fun, active way to kick off the conference!
Finally, I’d like to extend a warm thank you to all of our supporters. Without your dedication and enthusiasm, our many programs and events would not be possible. As we move toward the holiday season, I wish you all the best and hope you will keep CISCRP in your thoughts.
