A Message from the GMDI President

October 10, 2013

Hello GMDI Members! It's time to start thinking about attending the 5th GMDI Educational Conference, "Expanding Horizons in Clinical Practice" in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas on April 24-26, 2014. The GMDI Conference Committee has put together an excellent program with speakers and sessions that will be helpful to both newcomers and veterans in the field. The conference program is now on the GMDI website. Information will be out later this fall about submitting abstracts for the conference. Four abstracts will be selected for oral presentations, others will be presented as posters. I really encourage everyone to send in an abstract. Abstracts do not necessarily need to be present findings from large research studies. Reports about complicated patients, development of new educational tools or creative solutions to clinic management issues are all welcome. After the conference, all abstracts will be published on the GMDI website.

We are always looking for members to become involved in a committee. A description of committee activities can be found on the GMDI website, under the “Get Involved” tab. To join a committee, contact the committee chair.
