TTS Education Committee and Transplant Infectious Disease have joined together to play virtual Jeopardy! Given the online education fatigue that has been plaguing the transplant community, we hope that a Jeopardy! format will be a fun, different way to present information. Four leaders in transplantation community will be contestants in the online “game show". The topics will be Infectious Disease based but, geared towards the greater transplant community.
For those who are unfamiliar with the American Classic Game Show Jeopardy! - Jeopardy! features contestants who compete to answer the most questions correctly before their counterparts. While our version of Jeopardy! will not follow the exact rules of the true Jeopardy! Game Show - it will be structured similarly.
