ADDI Autumn Learning Series: Dataset Discussions
Join us for weekly one-hour presentations, each Thursday in October at 7a PDT/10a EDT, highlighting four of AD Workbench’s datasets. You will learn about the background of the study (including relevant design details, recruitment criteria, original aims), any key findings to date, open questions or other ‘food for thought’ for ADDI users, and finally any tips, tricks or nuances to accessing the dataset via AD Workbench.
Our Autumn Learning Series is open to all AD Connect members.
*You must Login to your ADDI account to register for the sessions below if you haven't already.
