We need YOU to nominate someone for our 2015 Humanitarian, Distinguished Service or Meritorious Awards. The award recipients will be announced and honored at our 2015 Annual Meeting in May. Nominations are accepted until March 31.
We are thrilled to start the New Year off with news of the Chapter’s 2013-2014 legislative success. And on the LAST day of session, no less!
You may think our favorite theater major turned massage therapist mastermind has a special place in her heart for a piece by one of the greats like van Gogh, Picasso, da Vinci, Monet, Michelangelo, or one from a female artist like O'Keeffe or Kahlo. Perhaps it's a photograph or a fascinating architectural piece. What you will soon learn is that Ruth paints with a broad brush when it comes to her choice in magnificent artwork. We shouldn't be surprised!
OK, so Ruth did specify that this is her favorite piece of research-related art. Still, this provides Ruth the foundation for her research presentations and we are so very fortunate she will be presenting Making Research Relevant: Findings and Applications for 5 Conditions at our Inaugural IDEA Conference May 1-3 in Needham, MA! Remember, research CEUs are REQUIRED to renew your Board Certification.
We have a stellar lineup of presenters and in-depth education for you! Be on the lookout for more of our Bright IDEAs blog series as we provide insight and insider information on our conference educators right up to May 1!
