    Many thanks to all the Sponsors of MedComms Networking


    The aim is to host a regular small meeting with 2-4 speakers presenting on various topics of direct relevance to MedComms. Importantly the presentations will be filmed for webcasting for free access by the global community afterwards. Topics will be announced in advance but we believe we can guarantee a useful educational and networking session every time. So make a note of the dates now. It's the first Wednesday of every month (except when it isn't!).

    Scroll down for copies of the presentation slides and the full webcasts, which are freely available.

    Date: 1 June 2016
