WEEKLY MEETINGS

Weekly Community Call:
This week’s OHDSI Community Call will focus on the European Health Data & Evidence Network (EHDEN). You can expect to hear about all about this exciting partner of the OHDSI community, including its growing data network, the EHDEN Academy, 2021 goals and plenty more from EHDEN leaders Peter Rijnbeek and Nigel Hughes.

As you may have noticed last week, we are continuing to test different methods for setting up and inviting to this meeting. This week, you will need the specific meeting link to access the community call. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.

Thanks to everybody who joined last week’s call, where we tried to help newcomers begin their OHDSI journey. There were several questions we couldn’t get during the Q&A session, so those have been answered in this forum post. Links to the video tours of OHDSI.org, our Teams environment, and more are also available there.
