The 50th Annual Meeting of the DIA is right around the corner! Today we're excited to kick off our promotion with a guest blog from our friend, Lani Hashimoto. Lani is an expert in global patient recruitment and retention with 19 years of clinical trial experience within global pharmaceuticals. In this post, Lani tells us about the Exhibit Hall Guide volunteer program she has coordinated at this year's Annual Meeting in an effort to facilitate networking opportunities between Patient Fellows and the pharmaceutical industry. So far, we've recruited two BBKers to volunteer and hope that you and your colleagues will participate, too!
