The entire conference was broadcast live to various locations including McGill University in Canada and to the health education network of the State of Oregon.The sponsorships of the Colleges of Medicine and Nursing were critical to our work, enabling the agenda to be accredited for professional education for MD’s, RN’s, SW’s, JD’s and other professionals. To be so honored the faculty and the presentations had to meet the highest of academic standards. All conferences in the series have received this accredited status. The faculty was of the highest quality; the press response supportive and the studies were presented under the theme of Science Based Clinical Applications, forming a benchmark of knowledge from which there has been no retreat.
