2022 GC-CPEH Member Retreat

May 5-6, 2022
Galvez Hotel, Galveston TX

The Galvez Hotel in Galveston, Texas will be the site of our first GC-CPEH-wide retreat on May 5 and 6, 2022.  We invite all Center Members and Pilot Project awardees to participate. 

As both the 2020  and 2021 retreats were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s meeting will take place over a day and a half, and provide you with an introduction to leadership and activities of the Center, a progress report for our first 3 years, and an opportunity to provide input to shape the vision for our P30 renewal in 2023. This will also be an excellent opportunity for you to meet other Center members and enjoy hearing about some of the great science ongoing in our Center.

We will provide lodging at the Galvez Hotel for the night of May 5 for all Members and Pilot Project awardees who would like to stay the night, and who REGISTER FOR THE MEETING BY APRIL 12.
