    This looks excellent! I hope the turnout for these valuable sessions is strong. And while you are at it, consider organizing a task force to insist CMS reassess and remove the requirement that all hospital patients are under the care of a physician for medicare reimbursement. I understand acuity needs to be a consideration but this is a roadblock in our ability to practice to the full extent of our scope in many states.
