I should have gone to DIA (Part II) #DIA2013

Regrettably, I’m not in Boston for the DIA Conference

This year I missed out on the Drug Information Association (DIA) conference but hopefully I can attend in 2014.  The fact that I am not attending didn’t stop me from browsing the conference schedule for the DIA 2013 49th Annual Meeting.  Yesterday, I posted a list of the sessions, panels, tutorials, and roundtables I would have been interested to check out the first several days of the conference.

If I did go to DIA this year – Part II

If I did go to the  conference this year, here is some of the content I might have selected for the final two days from the 4 day agenda. Pleas also check out my picks from Sunday 6/23 to Tuesday 6/25.

Are you attending the conference?

If there are other don’t miss sessions, you are welcome to contact me so I can consider adding them to my overview list.  If you attended the conference and are open to networking on any of the topics then I’d love to hear from you via email or in the comments.
