We’ll also publish a series of blog posts after the Forum about patients’ experiences at the event. Stay tuned, there’s a lot more to come!

There Will Be Patient Partners at the Forum -
Here's What They're Looking Forward To!

There will be 20 PVN Patient Partners attending the Forum! It will be a great learning and networking opportunity, and we’re looking forward to connecting with everyone at the event.

We were curious about what those patients were looking forward to, so we interviewed two of them about their expectations – check out what they said!

Article of Interest:
"Tweet Into Your Next Medical Conference"

Speaking of social media, a recent article in Forbes says that “using it to virtually attend a conference is the next best thing to actually being there in person.”

In the article, Kevin Campbell, a cardiologist, shares why he uses Twitter at conferences and provides a step-by-step guide for those who want to prepare to virtually attend an event. It comes in handy for those who won’t be able to attend Quality Forum 2017, but still want to follow everything that happens there!
