Slice of LYF Issue 15 - Arpil 2019 | Spring Forward For Camp!

Spring has officially arrived… and although the still-cold and still-rainy weather puts a wintry mood, the occasional golden days are a reminder that camp is in sight. As our preparation ramps up, we want to hear your feedback more than ever – test-drive our activities at meetings, talk to clinic heads about ideas, and reach out to us with your questions. The sun isn’t shining yet, but things are starting to heat up!
