The FORTE Workshop is coming soon…

January 17 2024

The FORTE Workshop will be held in person on February 16, 2024, at the NRG Winter Meeting in sunny Orlando, Florida. The workshop will review site-associated practices that are contributing to FORTE success, methods to introduce FORTE to gastroenterologists and entice participation, and strategies for promotion of FORTE within your clinical community.  Research staff at sites who are successfully enrolling participants will present strategies and tips for success. Come meet the FORTE team! Bring your questions and current experiences to share and to gain further insight on expanding FORTE at your institution.

Register today for the NRG Winter Meeting!

For FORTE research professionals who will not be able to join us in person in Orlando, subscribe to the FORTE YouTube channel where the recording will be posted afterward.
