Testimonials

“The virtual AIHce was a great way for our organization to learn and still meet the budget needs.”

“I found this to be a great way to get the education (and the CM points) in a cost effective way.”

“I enjoyed being able to attend the conference from home without the addition costs of travel.”

“The sessions which were offered were interesting and relevant, with topics appealing to both researchers and practitioners. Having the chat option to visit with other participants and to ask questions of the speakers was beneficial (and fun!).”

“Chat conversations are very helpful, sort of like subtitles to the main event. Unique opportunity because it is not something that you do “in person” unless there are twitter feeds or blogs going on… you are virtual but you are part of the virtual community and can dialogue on the topic without disrupting the presentation.”​​
