The symposium was a huge success. A huge thank you to all those who spoke at the symposium including Jonathan Miller, Theresa Zawacki, Randy Strobo, Hank Graddy, and Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr. An extra special thank you to Key-Note speaker, and the Founder and Executive Director of The Berry Center, Mary Berry.
