The MiTy Team, including Dr. Denice Feig (Principal Investigator), Dr. Elizabeth Asztalos (Director of CMICR), Johanna Sanchez (Research Projects Operations Manager) and Asma Qureshi (MiTy Research Coordinator) traveled South to beautiful Argentina and Chile! We will be welcoming teams from both countries to join the MiTy Team very soon.
Buenos Aires, Argentina – On November 30, 2012, collaborators from across Argentina, met in Buenos Aires at the Dazzler Tower Hotel to participate in the MiTy Collaborators’ Training Session. With eight centres attending, we presented the MiTy Protocol, study conduct, and regulatory requirements, followed by an afternoon of training on the Electronic Data Capture System, OpenClinica. It was a wonderful day, full of enthusiasm and questions. Thank you to Dr. Mario Palermo and Dr. Dolores Montes Varela for all of your hard work on organizing the training session!
Viña del Mar and Santiago, Chile – On December 3rd and 4th, 2012, we visited Hospital Dr Sotero del Rio in Santiago and Hospital Dr Gustavo Fricke in Viña del Mar. We presented the MiTy Protocol, regulatory requirements and study conduct at both centres, as well as completed the EDC training. Thank you to Dr. Juan Pedro Kusanovic, and Dr. Rodrigo Schiaffino Orrego for welcoming us to your centres and for all of you hard work in organizing the meeting.
A final heartfelt “Thank you” from all of us for your hospitality and for making us feel welcome. We enjoyed visiting your wonderful and gorgeous countries. We look forward to having you join the team!
