    One of our GCDA member benefits are our 2 Journal Clubs, one on the east side and one on the west side. The group picks the topics – the coordinator selects 10 or so articles on that topic. Members who would like to attend should contact the coordinator and request an article. Each member should review the article and presents a summary of the article. After each member presents the group will discuss the topic. It is a small group, nice discussion.  Please plan to join us.
