As a new OT in the NICU this was great information! I have an amazing and experienced mentor, but I loved gaining information from current research and sharing it with her as well!

Excellent training experience:  Presenters were so positive and it was evident that they have a contagious passion for giving the best care to our littlest humans.  I feel empowered to better care for my patients and their families.
