What Your Peers Said About the 2019 MEDS
"Perfect selection of topics and content... all was exceptional!!"
"Again another great conference. This is my third one and each time great up-to-date information that is usable."
"MEDS is an excellent comprehensive metabolic review for the busy practitioner. I work in a solo practice as the only primary care provider in a rural community clinic. I am associated with a larger organization, but for all intents and purposes, I am alone. The knowledge requirements for rapidly changing, evidence-driven patient care is immense, at times overwhelmingly so. I credit knowledge shared in MEDS with literally saving the lives of at least two patients in my practice, and enhancing good outcomes of countless others. The MEDS spiral bound paper syllabus is my "go-to, endo-everything" bible. I recommend MEDS to my NP students as a "must see " to enhance their practice if they are able to attend. I will be back for my MEDS tune-up on a regular basis. My only regret is not having the knowledgeable panel experts and presenters on my speed dial. Thank you!" Kathryn Hanson MSN, FNP, Wisconsin
"I thought all of the speakers were fantastic, engaging and it was really inspiring to have this conference lead by NP/PA colleagues who are practicing at the highest standard. I also thought the food was fantastic!"
"Surprised at the consistency of the level of expertise (of the faculty) with exceptional presentation skills. This is one of, if not THE best conference I have attended in my >20 years of practice."
"All presentations are exceptional. These speakers give you so much hands on material in their talks- Do not need an endo consult."
"My first MEDS conference; likely one of the best advanced practice conferences I've ever been to in my >20 yrs as an NP."
"All presentations were excellent information and gave useful tips to use in practice. Great presenters!"
"I look forward to attending the conference again next year in Orlando, I am thankful that this group of individuals put this together to help their peers improve on quality care."
"You guys rock for real! I'll be there next year God willing. I enjoyed every aspect of the conference so much."

Best conference with lots of practical information on improving client care - thank you!
This was absolutely the best DM/Endo conference I have ever attended. Keep clinical pearls and the speakers who are in the trenches. Nice balance of topics. Thanks so very much!
I just returned home from the best conference I have ever attended-the MED Summit 2011! It was outstanding. All sessions were pertinent and interesting. The information gained will be so useful in my current practice.
In looking around the conference room each day I was amazed to see how few opted out of a session. At many of the conferences I have attended in the past there would be a substantial loss of attendees half way or three quarters of the way through. Please do this again next year! It was terrific! Leslie Carmack, APN, NP-C, CDE
Excellent speakers! Not a sleep among them! Thanks!
I really appreciate how each speaker built in time for Q&A at the end of each talk and really stuck to their times so we don't run behind. I'm actually very impressed how well we stayed on time. Other conferences are not as predictable.
Wonderful program - highly recommend for all of my colleagues!
Program was priced just right - I feel that I got all my money's worth when I came here. I also feel that the speakers were great. The length of the program to me was very good. The 2nd day WAS hard but well worth it. I also felt that the program was very good in that we got to hear every topic and I didn't have to make a choice of what program to go to. The amount of CE was great as well. Committee did an awesome job.
Thank you for a valuable and stimulating conference. The speakers were well prepared and knew the material well. Sabra Boughton, NP
This was one of the best conferences! I appreciate all the professional effort and work that was put into this program, for US
This has got to be one of the best conferences I've attended as far as straight to the point lectures and topics that are important in our daily practices.
The Orlando MEDS conference was excellent. I appreciated the opportunity to attend. Judy F. Peacock, RN, BSN
Thank you for all your effort & time, you achieved a successful educational offering bringing together NPs and PAs to work and learn together for better patient care.
Great speakers - top notch! See you next conference...
