In an effort to continually improve the series, we would love to invite you to participate in our first annual audience evaluation of the MEdIC series. We want to make sure we always strive to meet the needs of our audience, and we would like you to help us by telling us about how you’ve experienced or used MEdIC this year.  Please share a bit about your experience in the following form.

Finally, we would thank the follow folks for all their involvement and participation in helping to make the MEdIC series a great success this year!
