Feedback from Attendees…

Here’s what people are saying about last year’s program:

“All the speakers were very different, yet all dynamic in their own way. The program was truly about life transitions in today’s world, and provided information we all need to learn, and or be reminded of when traveling a journey with an individual or a family.”
