A highlight of being a Forbeck Scholar is the opportunity to participate in the annual Scholar Retreat. Each year, 16 past and current Forbeck Scholars are invited to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for a weekend scientific gathering. Here, the Scholars share their research with the other Scholars and with three or four mentors. These mentors are senior scientists and clinicians, often members of the WGFRF Scientific Advisory Board, or past participants in the Annual Forum. The mentors serve to guide the flow of the agenda and discussions. Each Scholar will participate in four sequential retreats, with all expenses paid by WGFRF.
