2020 Registry Retreat


2nd Annual CARRA Registry Retreat

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Marriott: February 23 - 24, 2020

RSVP by January 24, 2020


The CARRA Registry Annual Retreat is a critical meeting for CARRA Registry principal investigators, sub-investigators and coordinators. The purpose of the retreat is to facilitate and improve the experience of participating in the Registry by actively engaging with one another through small group discussion, panel presentations, brainstorming, problem solving, and training.

The success of the CARRA Registry is very much dependent on everyone’s engagement, so we strongly encourage the participation of every Registry site in the retreat. Each Registry site may send their PI, one sub-investigator, and the primary research coordinators who enroll patients into the CARRA Registry.

The schedule will be as follows:

Sunday, February 23

1:00pm – 5:00pm     Research Coordinators Session*

7:00pm – 9:00pm     Welcome Reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails

Monday, February 24

8:00am – 4:00pm     Registry Retreat including breakfast and lunch

*This session’s content is targeted for research coordinators but investigators are welcome to attend.
