"The curriculum was much better than my already high expectations. I lobbied for financial support to attend in large part due to Dr. Cassie Gerhardt's testimonial from last year. After going through the curriculum, I can understand why Cassie gave such a positive review. Truly the best professional development experience I have had."
"I thought the Institute was wonderful. You did a great job making sure teams as well as individuals felt their needs were addressed. The food choices were the best I've ever experienced at a conference (and I've been to many), both in the variety of foods and the selection of healthy choices."
"My first step will be to determine who my champion will be and then form a committee. My organization's goal is to have the committee return to the Institute next summer."
"My organization has attended for the past five years and we have used the materials to develop a great responsive program. I was happy to see that the focus is on prevention because that is where we are headed now. Given that our goals are in alignment, I was pleased to have learned so much and feel that I am now qualified to move this process through my organization."
"The curriculum was beneficial, and I loved hearing FSU's approach to prevention. The presentations were eye-opening, and I appreciated the opportunity to meet so many other professionals! I had a great time and can't wait to come back next year to learn more."
"The information was very helpful. The speakers were great. The networking and sharing of ideas was nice."
