Plenary Sessions



    We know that some colleagues will not be able to attend this years’ Annual Meeting in New Orleans. We will miss seeing you in-person but would like to offer the opportunity to participate in the program by taking part in a livestream of the six plenary sessions. The sessions promise to be inspirational and thought-provoking and will address both how graduate education has changed since we last met in person and will anticipate new trends on the horizon.
