The 2017 OR Today Live Surgical Conference drew about 100 perioperative and surgical professionals from throughout the United States.

Attendees and exhibitors raved about the quality of the continuing education and the near-perfect networking opportunities available at planned events as well as interactions that happened organically during the conference.

“The educational line-up for this year’s OR Today Live conference far exceeded our expectations,” MD Publishing Vice President Kristin Leavoy said. “The speakers received rave reviews from attendees as they commented on the quality of the presentations, the valuable information provided, and the sharing of steps to implement improved practices at their facilities.”

“Vendors complimented OR Today Live on giving them the opportunity to connect one-on-one with attendees, not just in the exhibit hall, but in the sessions and networking events as well,” Leavoy added.

When asked to describe her favorite part of OR Today Live MaryJo VanSant of Reading Hospital in Pennsylvania said “The best part is that it’s so intimate and smaller than other huge conferences I’ve been to.”

“As a new nurse manager, I find I’m really enjoying the classes that focus on the collaboration between the OR and SPD,” she added.
