From Our Participants

“I just want to say that this meeting is (and was) one of the most useful to me in my practice.  The informal format, small groups and level of EXPERTISE [contributed to] the perfect learning environment for me personally.  I attended last year and will plan to attend next year.”  – Terrance C. Devlin, MD (2016, 2017, and 2018 participant)
