The 2023 DPC Annual Grantees Conference is scheduled for June 26 to 28 for both in-person and virtual attendees. The conference features presenters from all NIH initiatives, and aims to celebrate the accomplishments and efforts to advance the goals of the Diversity Program Consortium (DPC)!
Day 1 on June 26 will kick off with a reception for all in-person attendees. Both virtual and in-person guests can interact with community boards, by responding to prompts about their award’s involvement in the DPC over the last decade and reflecting on connections and collaborations. For more information about the community boards, including how to access them virtually, view the Day 1 schedule on the conference website.
Alison Gammie, PhD, of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at NIH, will open Day 2 on June 27 with a welcome to the conference and updates to highlight collective progress across the DPC. All attendees will have the opportunity to participate in panel discussions and networking opportunities with colleagues. Additionally, there will be concurrent sessions and two rounds of poster presentations for in-person participants. Virtual attendees can view the Conference Materials folder for digital posters and session materials.
The last day will feature an overview of NIGMS funding and the Ending Well panel, where all attendees will hear about the 10-year journey of the DPC. Like the first two days, there will also be networking opportunities for everyone.
All updates and conference details, including Zoom information for virtual attendees, will come through email during the month of June.
