Networking Opportunities – Cardiovascular Research Day is well known for being a great space for trainees to polish their networking skills. This year, we will again offer networking “encouragement” to trainees in the form of a networking game. If you turn in a completed game, you will be eligible for one of 4 - $500 travel awards to be drawn at the Awards Dinner. You must be present at the Awards Dinner to win.
