Here's what people have said about our previous Jewish Medical Ethics conferences:

"Yasher Koach for a marvelous weekend at Lake Placid. There wasn't a person who I spoke to who didn't rave about every aspect of the programming."

"It was the most exciting learning experience that I have ever attended."

"I left the conference on a total high. It was such a wonderful Shabbat experience. It was a Kiddush Hashem in so many aspects. The Torah learned, the Divrei Torah, and being in the presence of true role models was a wonderful experience."

"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Jewish Medical Ethics conference last week in Lake Placid. I found the sessions and the networking opportunities to be very worthwhile. I look forward to the opportunity to participate in the conference in a more active way in the future."
