SRS Seeks Trainees to Help Plan the 2013 Trainee Symposia Series

Sleep Research Society
Monday, August 13, 2012

The SRS is in the process of forming a committee of trainees to help plan the Trainee Symposia Series and other trainee-related activities at SLEEP 2013, the 27th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS) in Baltimore, Maryland.  This is a unique opportunity to become more actively involved in the SRS and your field!

The planning and organization of the SRS trainee-related activities are overseen by the SRS's Trainee Education Advisory Committee (TEAC), and its Chair, Philip Gehrman, PhD, with significant input and involvement of this committee of trainees. We are looking for trainees to volunteer to be part of the planning process.  Preference will be given trainee members of the SRS that have attended at least one SRS Trainee Symposia Series.  We also require that members of the committee attend the SLEEP 2013 meeting and assist the SRS staff during the Trainee Symposia Series program. We hope to assemble a committee of trainees with diverse research interests from broad geographic areas that represent the trainees within the society.

If you have any questions, or if you are interested in participating on this committee, please contact Megan Ruiter, PhD, Trainee Member-at-Large, via e-mail at meruiter@uab.edu by August 31, 2012.
