Plan Ahead for AIHce

Registration is open for AIHce 2017 EXP, which will be held June 4–7 in Seattle, Wash. Professional development courses will be held before and after the main conference on Saturday and Sunday, June 3 and 4, and on Thursday, June 8.
Keynote speakers. Ken Jennings, all-time “Jeopardy!” champion, and Dr. John J. Medina, a leading brain scientist, will present the main sessions at AIHce.
Jennings will kick off the conference on Monday, June 5. Since his six-month winning streak on “Jeopardy!” during which he won a total of 74 games and $2.52 million, Jennings has kept busy speaking about the importance of learning at college campuses and corporate events. He has also co-invented two trivia games and published books on topics ranging from his “Jeopardy!” adventures and the phenomenon of trivia in American culture to the allure of geography. His latest book is Because I Said So: The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids.
Dr. Medina will close out AIHce on Wednesday afternoon. A developmental molecular biologist focused on the genes involved in human brain development and the genetics of psychiatric disorders, Dr. Medina has spent most of his professional life as a private research consultant, working primarily in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries on research related to mental health. His book Brain Rules, a New York Times bestseller, has become the standard handbook of understanding and improving the brain.
Group rates. Group rates are now available for AIHce. Depending on the size of the group, individuals employed by the same company can save up to $100 per person on full conference registration.
Student posters. AIHA is now accepting student poster proposals. Displaying a poster at a major conference like AIHce is a way for students to receive constructive feedback on their research; gain visibility prior to entering the job market; and build their network. See the submission guidelines for more information.
Seattle favorites. Members of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of AIHA share recommendations for activities, restaurants, happy hours, coffee shops, and more in an online guide to food and fun in Seattle.
Virtual conference. The AIHce 2017 Virtual EXP provides an interactive experience with conference keynotes and curated education sessions without the need to travel. Virtual registration includes a multitrack session broadcast; opportunities to submit questions for presenters and interact with other virtual participants via chat; and post-conference access to session recordings.
Advance registration rates end on April 3, 2017. Visit the conference website.
