Your Hard Work Rewarded: The Scholarship Continues on GSA’s Meeting Platform

By CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH
November 7, 2020

To the 4,000+ researchers, clinicians and educators who’ve joined us so far for the GSA Annual Scientific Meeting Online: Thank you for making a difference.

In the middle of a pandemic, the science and insights you presented moved the field forward. You made the meeting a success and paved the way for GSA to host more online conferences for you in the future should the need arise.

The content on the meeting platform will be accessible through the end of this year. (We’re still accepting new registrations through the end of the year, too.) This new format brought a valuable alternative to in-person meetings. Chief among the benefits is the easy access to so much scholarship.

Every presentation has been archived for on-demand viewing. This includes the Opening Plenary Session, with an uplifting message from GSA President Kathy Hyer and presentations from NIA Director Richard Hodes and Deputy Director Marie Bernard. (I extend my special thanks to Kathy for a year of outstanding leadership as president, and extend a welcome to incoming President Terri Harvath, who will take office in January.)

Our presenter discussions enabled attendees to have direct interaction with the author of each presentation, and our discussion forums are enabling the conversation to continue online. We appreciate the patience of those who experienced technical glitches; these teething troubles provided learning experiences for us on how to quickly resolve issues that arise.

So far, we’ve welcomed attendees from the U.S. and 41 other countries. Congratulations on being pioneers that made GSA history. You should feel proud of the contributions you made.
