SERforum - Live with Dr. Enrique Schisterman

Hi Enrique,

I posted this question as a new forum (SER '18 Survey) in error.  It's a steep learning curve for me!

Also in the spirit of transparency, I'll disclose this is a loaded question, but one I think members might be interested in.

After the 2018 meeting (as in previous years), attendees were invited to provide feedback on the meeting content, logistics, etc.  What happens to the information that SER collects in that survey?


Thanks for this new forum!  How best to get involved with SER's efforts to impact policy?

Thanks for the question, Martha! We compile all of the answers from the survey and the executive committee reviews all of the comments and discusses ways to improve for next year. All comments are read and taken into consideration. Please encourage people to keep sending comments.

Thank you, Lorna. Great question! First of all, in scientific meetings the research presented should consider how it can impact policy. SER's conference provides a great opportunity to disseminate etiological effects and it's translation to policy. Also, participating in committees etc. is a good way to effect change in many ways,
