We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped make our Annual MedStar Health, IARP-Chesapeake, and IARP-Virginia Educational Symposium such a success! With Dr. Les Matthews and Dr. Curtis Whitehair opening the largest Symposium ever with over 300 attendees from the workers compensation community, excellent presenters and moderators, big casino winnings and a wonderful performance by the MedStar NRH Physician Feels So Good Band, it was definitely a day of education and fun.
We would like to thank all of our presenters, vendors, Maryland Workers Compensation Commissioners and expert moderators, Dr. Kathleen Fink and David Schoenfeld.
