Focus Groups: Finding Your Family in AAPS
Being part of a professional organization offers you a multitude of opportunities and benefits and connects you with thousands of other individuals with shared interests. But within a large organization, how do you find your place to connect and grow? How do you make the most of your membership?
At AAPS, focus groups (FGs) are one of the most effective ways to meet and network with other like-minded individuals, grow personally and professionally, and have an impact on both the organization and the science. And several AAPS members have reaped these benefits and more through their participation in AAPS focus groups.
“Through the FG membership, I have not only grown professionally as a scientist, but also as a person, as a key team player, and as an able leader.”
Read more from members about AAPS focus groups on the Career Success webpage of the AAPS Career Center.

As John Osborn put it in a recent Forbes article: "The long restrained, tightly controlled communication of scientific and medical information ... has been loosed."
