All presentations from the live conference will be made available for On-Demand viewing on April 19. This allows you the opportunity to complete any lectures you may have missed live and view any of the lectures on your own schedule.

Faculty Interaction:  

Live conference attendees will be able to chat and interact with faculty and other attendees while the presentations are playing. Our program faculty will pre-record their lectures so they will be able to answer questions in real-time throughout the entire presentation.  In the On-Demand format, attendees will see all comments made during the live presentation and will be able to email questions to content experts.
