Anyone planning on attending? I'll be there both days. Its probably not exactly "trad" but it is Catholic and it offers CMEs and it has received good reviews in the past.

What are CMEs?  I binged it and came up with coronal mass ejections, which I presume are not being offered at this conference?

Being Doc Bombay, I assume you already knew this and were just using some sort of Socratic dialogue.  They usually consist of long-winded conferences that doctors have to go to in order to please the healthcare bureaucrats.

This one looks like it could be pretty interesting though.  I've never really heard of anything quite like it.

Continuing Medical Education credits. All licensed medical caregivers are required to obtain a certain number of credits yearly to maintain their license and medical credentials. A fraction of the required number may be obtained from conferences on subjects outside of one's specialty or on subjects such as this conference offers.

Verily.

I'm looking forward to it but I wish it wasn't such a long drive. Fortunately I'm going to visit a friend near Stockbridge MA for the weekend after the conference so we'll attend mass at the Divine Mercy shrine in Stockbridge this Sunday before I head home to western PA.
Be careful not to heed those Catholic bioethics people. They call themselves conservative Catholics, yet they are pushing the church towards acceptance of Plan B in rape. They're confusing the public by promoting a false logic that a woman has a "right to defend herself from attacker sperm." Truthfully, sperm are not pathogens nor are they attackers. They unite with an egg to form a human being. No mention of encouraging more women to defend themselves against the male attackers. Instead, they want the woman to take an ovulation test first, which is unreliable; a test which isn't necessary since Plan B will be available OTC. Plan B is a drug that defies the doctrine of Humana Vitae not to frustrate conception.  It is a drug whose manufacturer claims is not abortifacient but actually *is.* It is made by a drug company who is using church leaders to gain market share and eliminate all opposition to its common use like aspirin pills. This is a move to appease health administration social justice committees and pro-choice politicians around the world. I talked to the drug company's lead female investigator on a radio show last month and called her out on this error. They cut off my microphone within a minute.

I'm not a real doctor.  Well, I am a real doctor of awesomeness, but not a medical doctor.  I presumed you knew that Pheo....if that is your real name.  :sneaky:

I commend you for your effort.  So many people nowadays are unwilling to challenge the zeitgeist and I find it refreshing.  Even if they did cut you off....but then, these people hate to be challenged so it's to be expected I suppose.
