2011 Centers Leadership Conference Presentations

To foster a stimulating exchange of ideas, and to keep each other up-to-date on the latest research findings and projects ongoing at Centers of Excellence, physicians and center leaders displayed scientific posters at the October 2011 Center Leadership Conference in Chicago, Illinois. In this interactive forum, a worthy project or a good idea in one center can lead to further development and related projects around the country, and the world.
