JOM: The Magazine

News and features on TMS, its members, and the professions it serves

Inside the December 2019 Magazine

The December 2019 issue of JOM: The Magazine features a quick, but comprehensive, overview of what to expect at the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (TMS2020)—including details on the All-Conference Plenary Session; new meeting features, like "silent sessions" and the Diffusion Zone; confirmed speakers for luncheon and awards lectures; and the two co-located meetings joining TMS in San Diego. The TMS Foundation also plays a central role in two articles this month. First, TMS Foundation Board of Trustees Chair Garry Warren shines a light on the importance giving back during the 2019 year-end appeal. Next, see what receiving support from a TMS Foundation-funded scholarship means when you meet the 2020 class of TMS Scholars. Also in this issue, be sure to get acquainted with the incoming Board members who will be installed at TMS2020.
