Monthly meeting on every 3rd Thursday
The VERITY/SCS Early Investigators Research Seminar is a monthly meeting for clinical and research fellows in rheumatology and visiting post-doctoral fellows, Children’s hospital rheumatology fellows and other “Early Investigators” in rheumatic, autoimmune and musculoskeletal diseases.
