GRASP POSTER WALKTHROUGHS OF MBCRC22 POSTERS

GRASP Poster Walkthroughs bring scientists and patient advocates together for a personalized discussion about a scientific poster presented at a conference. Less like a presentation, and more like a conversation, advocates are encouraged to share their experiences as people living with or caring for someone with this disease.

Below are the group pages for REGISTERED attendees.
