How it works

Simply contact the co-chairs of the Website Journal Club Committee Drs Teng Santiago, Joe Piccione or Emily DeBoer with any suggestions or questions.

The Journal Club co-chairs will contact the primary or senior AUTHOR of article to solicit: (1) their participation, (2) their input on PRESENTER for the article, and (3) their input on PANEL OF EXPERTS (2-3) for the article. The Journal Club co-chairs will work individually with each participating member to prepare for the Journal Club, and will moderate the Journal Club webinar.
