University of Washington’s Institute of Translational Health Sciences is hosting Heidi Munger Clary from Wake Forest University School of Medicine through the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Visiting Scholars Program on March 26th at 12pm PST.
Dr. Munger Clary’s talk is titled: Anxiety & depression in epilepsy: Learning health system research to address care gaps .
This program is designed to connect individuals with institutional KL2 awards from outside the UW with established UW faculty in their field as they consider next steps in their career. The goal is that these connections will persist beyond the visit and that this program will foster exchange of ideas and collaboration among different CTSAs.
