2008 Health Sciences Open House exhibitors to meet Feb. 7

The 2008 Health Sciences Open House will be on Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26, and it’s time for units that would like to have exhibits or demonstrations to begin making plans.

An Exhibitors Information Meeting to provide guidelines and tips on available resources will be held at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 7, in Hogness Auditorium at the Health Sciences Center. Tammy Maez, Open House coordinator, noted that this is a good chance for units considering an exhibit to learn about what’s involved, as well as a source of information for exhibitors from previous events. Attending the meeting is not a commitment to have an exhibit; each unit will need to fill out a registration form to participate.

The deadline for registration forms is Friday, March 14. Forms will be available at the meeting and online.

The Health Sciences Open House is held every two years to showcase the work done at the Health Sciences Center and the resources available here. Thousands of students and community members visit the Open House. Exhibitors should be from one of the UW Health Sciences schools or a unit of UW Medicine.
