"Moving Forward" Roundtable Discussions & Calls to Action In the spirit of "moving forward," a number of roundtable discussions will allow attendees to engage with each other in an intimate virtual setting to further explore some of the topics discussed previously during the conference and to discuss how we might come together as a community to address access and funding challenges.

We will capture these "calls to action" and plan to continue the conversations in the future to address the key points raised during these roundtable discussions.
