New Orleans, LA, January 20, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- "The Annual Meeting is an invaluable event in my opinion. It provides an opportunity to network, build relationships and learn what is happening in the field as it happens. Although journal articles are very good, to be on the front line, you have to hear what people are doing in the practice before it is published. This is where the thought leaders share information, provide thought provoking stimulation, and push the intellectual envelope!"
- Joseph Zygmunt, Jr RVT RPhS
