Brief Abstract

It’s been a wonderful week of conference sessions, and our brains are buzzing with new knowledge, inspiration, and hopefully, new friendships. Remember, though: your brain needs downtime and reflection, too! Join us in our final, Slow Networking Lounge session. This session is an open invitation to take a breath, take a walk, take a stretch, and take what you need to recharge your batteries. We will have structured opportunities to share statements of gratitude and to share “gifts” with other participants through meaningful learning points experienced throughout the conference.
