HSR&D's National Meeting is scheduled for February 13-15, 2008 at the Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, Md. Implementation across the Nation: From Bedside and Clinic to Community and Home is the theme for the 2008 meeting. This theme was selected to emphasize HSR&D's commitment to examining best practices in implementing state of the art health care for veterans. Together with workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions, meeting highlights include a keynote address by Dr. Carolyn Clancy, Director of AHRQ, presentation of the Under Secretary's Award for Outstanding Achievement in Health Services Research, and a presentation by a young veteran injured in combat in Afghanistan. Visit the 2008 National Meeting website for more information.
