This year’s program committee reviewed literature; identified gaps; examined professional practices, scrutinized abstracts; explored evidence-based practices and practice-based evidence; analyzed surveys; and, evaluated organizational and professional input.  They mirrored and represented a variety of disciplines and practice nests.  Their goal was to create an interactive, evidence-based program all attendees could enjoy and use to build their toolboxes of clinical skills to positively impact clients.  Special thanks and kudos to each of them.
