Teratology Society Booth at SOT—It was the place to be!

On March 11-13, 2019, the Teratology Society exhibited at the ToxExpo as part of the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.

Booth #2206 was the place to be - to catch up with old friends and make some new connections!

Teratology Society volunteers talked with over 140 SOT attendees who visited the Teratology Society booth. Thank you to the 22 members (listed below), ranging from student members to past presidents, who made this possible by volunteering their time to work in the booth and share their enthusiasm for the Teratology Society with attendees! Special thanks to Elise Lewis and Linda Roberts for taking time out of their busy schedules at SOT to make sure things were running smoothly in the booth throughout the event.
