Editor's Notes

  • I was thinking of adding this slide to encourage people to follow up with us for further discussion. Unlike the format of a conference, we won’t talk to people at the end of the program, bump into them at other sessions, etc. so it seems worthwhile to start with encouraging additional dialogue.
  • What would we do in the future?
