"I just wanted to once again express my thanks for including me in such a paradigm-shifting, thought-provoking, practice changing experience this weekend. I have had an amazing day in the clinic playing with many, many things I learned. As you said from the start Ben, it was compressed and every bit was highly relevant to clinical practice. Such a gift from such a great trio."
