Happy Holidays!

Before heading off into the break, we reflected on how much we value the incredible members of Team ABC3. We have had yet another productive and educational year! We’ve shared many successes including the progress and wrap up (a couple!) of our individual studies, the achievements of our trainees, and our 3rd AGM.

We look forward to another big year ahead for our team.

Please accept our warmest wishes to you and your families this Holiday Season.
