This event does NOT require PRE-REGISTRATION.  Please use the link above to sign into the event on April 13th.

Why: While we work with our patients to help them better adapt through change and uncertainty at an individual level, at the systems level, adaptability can manifest as innovation. But in order to steward that innovation, we need to first understand the process of innovation within our system.


*"S3" is our new educational initiative - SUSP Spotlight Series - where we highlight the incredible things our members do to advance our field.
