ACS reported high levels of satisfaction from participants. Comments included: “This speaker is one of my favorites.” “This was a very useful topic!” “Very informative, very interesting, very sobering, very good presentation. ” “Presentation had great depth, in short time. Easy to understand graphics w/ presenter’s help.” “Excellent seminar, very up to date. Thanks!”
