What Attendees are Saying
Well organized and implemented program with quality, timely lectures and great vendors. Thoughtful staff and detailed planning to provide great food an beverages for the breaks too.
Christopher Japour, DPM
This is always an excellent conference. It is a shame that it remains so poorly attended. It is at least as good as the Midwest, but has so few attendees.
Martin C. Yorath, DPM
Hopefully as we get out of COVID more residents, directors and attendings need to return to the rumble and attend. These rumbles are fantastic opportunities to build face to face communication and learning experiences between residents and their attendings outside of the hospital, otherwise lost in the virtual world.
