Extend Your Reach at Thrive 2017

Tired of the same old CE? Thrive 2017 is our premier educational event, bringing you carefully curated interactive programming. In a morning workshop, you will have the opportunity to gain confidence in treating pregnant patients, learn best practices for geriatric care or explore practical applications of evidence-informed care when treating non-MSK symptoms. In the afternoon, network with colleagues, enjoy the view of the CN tower from the Delta at lunch and let our keynote inspire you to break communication boundaries and develop deeper relationships with your patients.

Why attend?
