Registration Information

Please Read First:

We are taking an exciting big step at this event in January 2019. For those who’d like more time at this event, we’re offering an extra day on the front end of the conference for those who’d like 4.5 more CME credits, more vacation and more time with Christopher Hook, MD, our speaker.

We know that many of you will not be able to take off another day of work and those with children in school and healthcare students will not be able to take advantage of this bonus day.

Look at the schedule to see where the extra sessions fit and how much free time you’ll have if you come early. So, I hope you’ll consider joining us on Thursday, January 24 and stay through Sunday, January 27.

The main conference remains the same: Friday, January 25 – Sunday, January 27. As usual, registration opens at 4pm on Friday afternoon and the conference it starts at 8pm on Friday night.
