About the Event

Since its inception in 2011, the AQC has been committed to furthering education, expanding awareness, and fostering engagement among Sponsors, CROs, and Clinical Service Providers.

The AQC Fall Member Meeting is an opportunity for operational leaders within ClinOps, Quality, Pharmacovigilance, Clinical Research and Development, and Outsourcing to connect with Avoca and industry thought leaders in a fun, casual and interactive learning environment.
