Very enjoyable experience. Definitely exceeded my expectation. Never attended virtual conference before. Was skeptical about the format and audio/video quality. Everything went smoothly. Great content and presenters. An excellent conference overall. Thank you!"
The virtual conference platform was very beneficial in saving money, time, travel away from home. To be able to view lectures from the comfort of your own home or office was much more relaxing and beneficial atmosphere. I was able to view exhibit hall and speak to vendors on my terms, without having to "walk" to booths. This platform is more aligned with 21st century medicine and where we are heading with Telehealth."
I was initially disappointed that the conference had to be a virtual event. However, this was an awesome experience. As always, all of the presenters were great. This has always been my favorite conference to attend because you offer so many choices of presentations for us to choose from. Please continue striving for excellence. We learn so much every year. Thank you and I appreciate everyone who contributed to the success of the SAWC Virtual.​​​​​​​"
I have already applied the keynote message to my staff. Enthusiasm is really a driving force."

I’m happy to say that I participated in both conferences last year. I teach nurse practitioner students who will care for a variety of populations. I need to be able to impart the most current research and practice guidelines to my students. This meeting delivers that."
