It’s been very interesting. A few things that really stand out for me – it’s so multidisciplinary. It’s not usual that you get such multidisciplinary interaction from allied health, researchers and clinicians coming together. So for me, that’s the thing that’s really interesting is the meetings - its taking basic science and talking about how do we make that work in the real world. And that’s for me, what makes it an exciting meeting for me to be at.
