On April 20-21, 2017 the CSCTR and MWAFMR will hold their Combined Annual Meeting at the Mid-America Club in Chicago, IL. The planning committee has been working diligently to obtain advanced speakers to present their latest research and findings at the 2017 meeting. This year, we are looking to expand the MWAFMR Career Development Workshop to be more inclusive and simultaneously present our young scholar award winners with an opportunity to showcase their work. On behalf of the Midwestern Section Council, I invite you to submit your abstracts, attend the meeting and get involved in AFMR activities!
