Creative Content Committee



The Creative Content Committee is focused on inspiring and facilitating creation of imaginative content across all mediums (podcasts, blogs, white papers, social media, web pages, industry event participation). We strive to curate captivating content that resonates, educates, and entertains, with the goal of fostering a strong connection amongst the members of the Digital Pathology Association. We collaborate with content authors to give a global voice to perspectives and amplify insights. We serve as the vanguard of digital transformation in pathology, igniting conversations, embracing new ideas and celebrating adoption successes.
