Peer Review Opportunity

Would you like your PowerPoint presentation to be peer reviewed? Do you have questions regarding clinical content and/or developing audience engagement questions? We have paired faculty members with an FMX Advisory Board (FAB) member. Your assigned FAB contact will reach out to you in mid-May. This is an opportunity for you to ask specific questions and/or to have your FMX presentation peer reviewed.
