It was my pleasure to meet you at Innovation in Research 2018. It was such an Awesome and Dynamic experience! It was tremendously engaging and I gained great insight into all of the innovative initiatives taking place within biomedical sciences for the future.

The information that I gathered will be shared throughout our medical and health careers department with my colleagues. I established excellent contacts and met esteemed scholars and educators who I will keep in touch with. Thank you for sharing the invitation to participate in the Roundtable: Educators and Employers meetings as well. I look forward to them.

You just keep doing what you’re doing because it is making all the difference educating everyone through all of the extraordinary changes in science and innovative leadership in science. I am very glad I could attend and I would love to continue our collaborations in the future.
