PRESENT Treasure Hunt 2021 Virtual Conference Pleases Nationwide Audience

About the Conference

The PRESENT Treasure Hunt 2021 Conference has a 40-year history of providing mostly practice management education and mentorship to the Los Angeles County Podiatric Medical Association, one of the largest county podiatric medical associations in the country. This year, PRESENT e-Learning Systems took it virtual and added a state-of-the-art CME program delivered by an elite nationwide faculty, resulting in attendance over 500, 60% of which was from outside California. Conference Co-Chairs Harold Schoenhaus, DPM, Robert Lee, DPM, and Gabe Halperin, DPM delivered a virtual education program that was uniformly praised by attendees. The post-event surveys show widespread satisfaction with the event, with 97% stating that they would attend future similar events. Even the Exhibit Hall experience, which is difficult to deliver virtually in a way that matches the appeal of an in-person event, was found by 70% of attendees to be as good or better than other conferences they have attended.

Dr Gabe Halperin was kind enough to make available to you two valuable handouts and his PowerPointâ„¢ presentations associated with his lectures. You can access these files at this LINK.
