“This was my first time at CMED and as a new Centre Director, I found the networking opportunities and the content of the sessions to be of tremendous value in helping me get up to speed, and to make connections with other Centres. I plan to come back every year if possible.”

Leigh Puddester, Gardiner Centre, Memorial University

“The caliber of this conference is much higher than any others that I attend due to the attention to detail in putting together the agenda and all the communication leading up to the conference.  The attendees’ willingness to reach out and help one another is unmatched.  I always leave re-energized for the work ahead of us.”
