RSNA ’15 Horos Users Meeting… AGAIN!

Hello Horos users!

We wanted to catch-up with you since it’s been a little while. As you know, the Horos team grabbed some Thanksgiving turkey and headed to RSNA ’15 to host our first Horos users meeting at the Apple store.

We had a great event where Horos users from all over the world were able to share their expertise, feedback, use-case, and more. It was a great experience where we learned and shared a lot with each other. But we’re sad that not all of you could make it… that’s why we’re doing it again!

You’re invited to the RSNA ’15 Horos Users WEB-meeting.
Thursday, December 17 @ 1pm EST

Attending RSNA isn’t feasible for all members of the community but they still want to hear the latest news, updates, meet our developers, share feedback and ask questions about Horos. Here’s your chance! Click below to register for our users web-meeting next week:
