"I have been attending medical conferences for over twenty-five years. My grandson is affected by autism, so I wanted to learn more about autism spectrum disorders as well as claim continuing medical education credits for my practice. The USAAA conference is the most organized and thorough conference I have ever attended, including all of the medical conferences I attended in the past."
