Speakers are selected by a multidisciplinary committee of academic and practicing clinicians and based on two criteria:1. Expertise – nationally recognized and often responsible for advances relative to practice, and
2. Ability – to share it in a practical, succinct, and entertaining way to facilitate its easy incorporation into a practice.
