KHRC Works in Progress Seminars (WIPs)

KHRC Works in Progress (WIPs) occur every other Monday on the San Francisco VA Medical Center campus (building 2, room 140) at 10am-11am.  They are an opportunity for our members to present work and ideas in order to get feedback and comments.  If you are interested in learning more about our work, please feel free to join us for these WIPs.  You can also call into a conference line if you are unable to make it to campus. Please contact Erica Day ([email protected]) for more information about our WIPs and participating.
