The Tennessee Perfusion Association Conference:
Live via Twitter… September 23-24
Editor’s Note: This opportunity is provided by the laudable initiative of Mr. Behr. He reflects / represents well regarding his university (Vanderbilt) and it’s perfusion program.
As well, it should be mentioned that the Tennessee Perfusion Society is offering the video-cast of this seminar as an opportunity for perfusionists to earn 19.2 CEU’s.

The intention here @ CircuitSurfers is to offer up a library of these types of objective POV’s (Points of View) to highlight conferences as well as “personalize” what a potential attendee can expect if deciding to participate.
