    We have reached that time of year again!  The time we ask our members to help continue to  improve upon the success of  the Greater Pittsburgh Chapter of ACRP.  These unprecedented times have presented a unique challenge to our chapter.  We would welcome new ideas and options for continued education.  If interested, please volunteer to be an officer. 


    One of our goals is to provide four education opportunities to the members.  We are already looking forward to an event scheduled for next year, Clinical Trials Day at Carnegie Science Center.  In order to meet this goal we need to explore other options.  The best way to succeed is to begin with new ideas and concepts from other members.
