March 25th- The Becoming of a Biological Practice….   Informal Q & A

This will be a Q&A driven lecture. There will be advice on what to buy first, how to convert from a conventional practice, how to handle and hire staff, how to speak with patients and much more. Attending this gathering may be the most important mind organizer and confidence builder for you before you return home to begin anew on Monday morning. Not to be missed by the first time attendees or those who want to continue to build their practice.
