A sunny but humid day greeted a record-setting 146 participants as they gathered just outside the conference hotel for the 25th running of the Frank Landy SIOP 5K Fun Run. The course was a scenic tour of the Disney property. A misplaced course turnaround produced a course of 2.8 miles, rather than the promised 3.1, resulting in many runners being pleasantly surprised at their quick finishing time. Nonethless, a good time was had by all. Top finishers are listed below. Join us next year in Chicago!

The SIOP Scientific Affairs Committee is excited to report that the 4th Annual Science Funding Speed Mentoring event held on Friday, April 28 at SIOP 2017 in Orlando, FL was quite a success! With the help of eight generous and wonderful mentors (another huge thanks to Lillian Eby, Shawn Burke, Greg Ruark, Reeshad Dalal, Daisy Chang, Sallie Weaver, and Louis Tay), we were able to improve the science funding knowledge and interests of 27 motivated and enthusiastic SIOP members! Program evaluation results revealed that every single participant rated the event as very useful and was likely to recommend this event to others in the future. As in previous years, the event was also rated as “good” or “very good” by every attendee, and attendees expressed interest in participating again in the future. Some of the remarks made by our protégés:
