As part of this year's theme, "Making a Difference: Using Patient-Centered Research Results in the Real World," attendees at the two-and-a-half-day conference will learn about how patients, researchers, clinicians, payers, and others across the healthcare community are working to make health research more useful and relevant. In addition, hear about the latest results of PCORI-funded research and efforts to promote their use in practice, and find out how our unique approach to engaging patients and other stakeholders in the work we do is changing the way health research is conducted. Attendees can also hear about how PCORI can best serve the healthcare community into the future. You can register now to reserve rooms at the conference site hotel at special discounted rates. We look forward to seeing you in September.

PCORI Annual Meeting: Patient Scholarship
Once again, PCORI offered scholarship opportunities for patients, caregivers, and patient representatives to attend the Annual Meeting. This was a competitive opportunity with a limited number of scholarships. PCORI seeks to ensure fair representation of historically underrepresented and minority patient communities, diverse geographic representation, and a mix of new and returning PCORI Annual Meeting attendees.
