Why I Attend Convention

The scientific sessions provide excellent information on advances in my specialty in an environment conducive to discussing special practice issues important for my patients. Spontaneous engagement and discussions with physicians and other healthcare professionals with similar patient demographics further enhances my learning and engagement during the NMA conference.
