 What 2016 attendees told us:

 "I like the fast pace and great amount of high yield EBM information. I really enjoyed the clinical inquiries and the Help Desk. Really enjoyed the mindfulness."

 "Very focused and useful evidence based data I can use in my clinical practice. Answered questions that I have wondered about but not been able to take the time to look up myself to see if data/recommendations have changed."

 "It's like they were in the clinic with me for the past six months, looking up my clinical questions!"

 Thank you to our 2017 conference supporters!
