"Thank you to all who attended our fabulous conferences this year. In the spring, we welcomed Dr. Phyllis Kosminsky and in the fall the incredible Dr. Mary Frances O’Connor! We had record numbers in attendance this year, and engaged with folks from all over the world. Both conferences were truly wonderful days together packed with great learning."
