Tom Payne, AMIA Board Chair and Doug Fridsma, President and CEO of AMIA, will chair this annual listening session for Summit attendees. The last two years have been busy for the field and the organization with a new strategic plan, engaging influential audiences, and working together to transform health and healthcare.

Tom and Doug will give a brief overview of the Board of Directors' work and key activities of AMIA including the new communications plan #WhyInformatics. #WhyInformatics is centered on promoting you--the community committed to the vision of a world where informatics transforms people’s care. The listening session's primary focus is to listen!

Please join Tom and Doug with your questions and comments for a thoughtful discussion.

Be sure to take a look at AMIA’s #WhyInformatics videos on YouTube!

Visit the video booth onsite and record your #WhyInformatics. We collected more than 100 member stories at the AMIA 2017 Annual Symposium and are looking for high level of participation from translational bioinformatics and clinical research informaticians!  (Prizes for the best video, too!)
