  1. Ha! This is just awesome.

  2. Cute! But why no mention of CME_Hulk? Wouldn’t want to hurt his tender feelings.

    I compiled a few of my favorite comments from our latest conference, Hopefully you’ll find the humor in them as I did.

    If only I could answer these people… :)

    If you want this program to grow and you want PHYSICIANS to show up (rather than just NP’s or PA’s or dieticians), you all will have to change the topics to include OTHER SUBJECTS NOT just diabetes topics.
    DON’T COME TO A DIABETES CONFERENCE THEN

    Open the invitation to Community Health Worker and Community Health Worker Instructor and offer Continuing Education.
    WE HAD 10 ATTEND.

    offer well known food dishes and avoid foreign foods because the chances of a majority liking these is very low.
    DID I MISS SOMETHING? IS CHICKEN, RICE OR SALAD TOO RISQUE? ARE CHURROS TOO EXOTIC?

    provide wifi
    IT WAS PROVIDED

    Pick speakers who are better known in the Diabetes World
    POLONKSY LITERALLY WROTE THE BOOK ON IT

    Cost is too high. Has gone up too much.
    ACTUALLY IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE AND IT WAS $100 CHEAPER THAN LAST YEAR

    explain where exactly the meetings where take place
    BECAUSE THE ADDRESS AND PICTURE ON THE BROCHURE ARENT ENOUGH

    Send confirmation of registration immediately after registration. I received a confirmation only 12 hours before program started.
    THEN DON’T MAIL IN A CHECK AND SUBMIT IT ONLINE LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD FOR INSTANT RECEIPT

    If there needs to be a substitution, it would be better to have some one who is presenting the same or nearly the same information as the person who cancelled.
    YES I KNOW I’M AWESOME, BUT I’M NOT 15 SPARE TALK/EXPERT SPEAKERS ON STANDBY AWESOME.
