    Not sure if this belongs here, but didn't know where else to put it. Maybe we need a section for conferences? Could mods add this to calendar?

    It's a start. But standard clinical care in the US is still GET, therapy, and antidepressants. That is, if you are one of the 10% diagnosed.

    Because there is no conference CME credit, it might be difficult to attract doctors from outside Salt Lake City, unless they already have a strong interest in the topic.

    I applaud this conference, and hope to see many many more like it. Hopefully in the future offering CME credit.
