"Encore Performances"

AOD has given nearly 100 workshops to date. How do you know these are the "best airway CME?"  As much as we would like you to believe us, the proof is in the opinions of past attendees. Below you will find email addresses for many of these clinicians. But perhaps more convincing is the number of times we have been asked to repeat the workshop for the same practice group:
