After weeks of care-full work from the brilliant program committee, #ACH2023 acceptances are out! I'm sending gratitude to the committee (Caitlin Pollock, @apjanco, @alexwermercolan, Eduard Arriaga, Sarah Potvin). And 💫especially💫 to
@pam, our amazing, compassionate Chair. Collaborating with Pam on #ACH2023 has been the best part of my academic year.
I cannot wait for y'all to see the program (soon soon!). This year's @ach conference is going to be something special. And, registration is open! Join us this summer!
