Symposium Presentations

"The talks were just exceptional; it was an extremely rich day. The mix of creative clinical work, where physicians are addressing real-world problems and doing fantastic things to help people, combined with the scientists who are coming up with new solutions that are changing the landscape, made for a very rich symposium. I heard things that I think are very influential."
