I had a fabulous time and met many more potential mentors than I thought possible at a conference. Great research-oriented group of people who are very welcoming and passionate about what they do. The conference attendees were all welcoming and inspiring. I look forward to attending more conferences in the future! Great opportunity to make connections and learn about advances in the field!
