Research Day 2017

This year’s NESS Research Presentation Day will be held Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at the Waltham Woods Conference Center within the headquarters of the Massachusetts Medical Society in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Remember that, per Society By-Laws, either attendance at Research Presentation Day or inclusion as an author of an abstract submitted for consideration for presentation at Research Presentation Day meets the Society’s active participation requirement—so please consider attending the 2017 program and co-authoring an abstract. Visit this page regularly for updates.
