Dr. Ayoob, who has previously presented at SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC), is ever popular because of his content and delivery. Participants will also have a rare opportunity to discus other various topics with Dr. Ayoob—from how to deal with parents of allergic children to program cost containment and any topic or concern you want to discuss.
