Dear PALISI members,
It is time to look forward to the Fall 2022 PALISI meeting in beautiful Indianapolis, IN in September! The preliminary meeting agenda is shaping up to be one that is not to be missed, check it out!

A few important points about the meeting:
1. Faculty Volunteers for Clinical Research Course: Mandy Hassinger (email@example.com ) and Ric Pierce (firstname.lastname@example.org ) are seeking additional faculty volunteers for the Clinical Research Course to take place on Monday, September 19th. The preliminary agenda can be seen here https://www.palisi.org/_files/ugd/ca6f19_1d498be3f02c4dcaab609b3bd9f807c5.pdf! Specific areas of need include: Specific Aim reviewers (1:1 w/ CRC attendee); Panel discussion participants (basic, clinical, data, implementation and outcomes science); NIH Biosketch workshop (1:1 w/ CRC attendee); Elevator pitch delivery session (1:1 w/CRC attendee); and everyone is encouraged to attend the CRC Young Investigator Showcase talk at 4:30 PM. Also, remind your junior investigators that spots are still open for them to attend. Registration is open on the PALISI website. The link to register is here: https://www.palisi.org/clinicalresearchcourse
2. Implicit Bias Workshop! We are fortunate to have past PALISI chair Ann Thompson present a workshop entitled “Who me? Biased? Recognizing the impact of our biases in healthcare and working to make change.” We have had this session planned for two years, but as it should be in-person for maximal benefit, we postponed it for our next live meeting. So don’t miss this! To prepare, Ann has asked that everyone do 3 of the Harvard implicit association tests (short tests, recommended to pick 3 from race, gender-science, gender-career, or at your choice). The can be found here: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html
3. New protocol presentations! With the large number of agenda requests, we are hopeful that everyone can arrange their schedules to make sure they attend the Thursday morning session, which is packed with exciting new protocol presentations. Please assure your travel schedule allows everyone to attend the full meeting.
4. The NEW & IMPROVED PALISI Website is now updated and functional! https://www.palisi.org/
Please take the time to look around, sign up for PALISI emails, and look at the subgroup pages. The website will continue to expand, and hopefully we can overcome the blocking of gmail addresses at many of our institutions by having emails come from ‘palisi.org’. Stay tuned.
We look forward to seeing everyone in just a few weeks, and keep an eye on the website or by email for any updates.
