What Past Attendees are Saying

I appreciate an organization that is willing to share information for free. Those that have little to give keep what little they have close. However when you are willing to share for free, there is more to be had and they are truly at the top of their field.

P. Smith, BridgePoint Hospital Capitol Hill

I was happy to see that this was not just a sales pitch for a product, but truly an educational offering.
