“This is the only place to find the kind of information we are looking for—it is a great conference to be part of.”

Dr. Thomas Schleeter
St. Vincent Medical Group, Indianapolis IN

Content was right on point for current discussion. Opportunity to network.

The content of the lectures was superb.

The topics were all of interest – it was hard to choose for the breakout sessions because I wanted to attend them all.

Great content and networking. Every time we bring new docs they are very impressed!

This was an amazing conference. The sessions were very valuable. I enjoyed every aspect of this conference
