From the President’s Desk

I am counting down the days until I see many of you in Milan for our annual GRS meeting! If you are unable to attend in person, do not miss the virtual portion, which will be available in multiple languages as well. We will have a productive time in Milan, hosting GRS, ICAN & several posters & symposium presentations!

This newsletter is packed with important content, so don’t miss a word….


We welcome two new members and highlight two new peer-reviewed publications. We provide opportunities for you to participate in upcoming world awareness days and the GRIDD study.

Please be safe in your travels to Italy, and until then, “Ciao!”

All my best,
