Secretary Report



June 20, 2007- Meeting Review

Overall evaluations received were positive for the meeting on “Medical Errors: Begone” continuing education presented by Chris Fetters. Attendees enjoyed the luncheon and their day at Hershey Park.  Some concerns were raised about the presentation of Chris’s product which is used for glucose testing.  Nova had agreed to sponsor the meeting via an educational grant, the presentation of the Stat Strip was granted in lieu of a vendor table since none were available at this venue.
