This summer, WSAJ Trial Stars will join us via Zoom in a series that is open to, and complimentary for, EAGLE members in practice 5 years or fewer. Our 2021 Fellows will also be invited to participate.
Attendance is limited so that there will be time for Q&A and dialogue with the speaker. WSAJ hosts these series periodically to give our young EAGLE members exposure to some of our more experienced members in an informal setting where you can ask questions about trial preparation, techniques and more.
