Feedback from previous conferences

  • Workshops were very useful. Topics seemed to cover a range of issues, which gave attendees a lot of different choice.
  • All of the workshops were useful and I appreciated the variety of talks mixed with more interactive workshops.

  • The conference instilled a wonderful feeling all day long, that I could be myself with everyone I talked to.

  • The conference made me rethink my program.
  • It was great to be surrounded by others who are making a daily commitment to staying healthy.
  • I appreciated how dedicated the volunteers who organized it were - it inspired me to see how much work people can put into service.
