NOTES:

SHUTTLE:
A complimentary shuttle is available at the hotel if you arrange ahead:
-to pick you up from the airport and take you back to airport
-to take you to the hospital for appointments and pick you up
-to take us to the symposium and take us back to the hotel.

Please make your own arrangements for this as some people will have their own vehicles and it will be easier if people just let the desk at the hotel know their requirements.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Breakfast at the hotel: There is a wonderful complimentary breakfast and many people enjoy this and meeting others at this time – it seems to be a popular time to visit.

Happy hour at the hotel: There is also a very popular happy hour most days at the hotel that is enjoyed by many – another chance to visit and meet others.

Coffee hour at the hotel: I may set this up depending on how busy we are with the presentations.


PRESENTATIONS ON SPINAL CORD STIMULATION by an OT participant:
Annette Muir has had this procedure and is willing to share her experience with us.
Once she knows her schedule at the hospital, we will set up times for her to be in a location at the hotel where people can come and ask questions and hear this presentation.
More on this later.
I have asked Dr. Torres if he could also address this at the symposium.

PRESENTATIONS ON FLORIDA CLINICAL TRIALS by an ot participant:

Elizabeth Copeland and Marcia Padgett both participated in the Florida Clinical Trials and will share their experience with us. Once they knows their schedule at the hospital, we will set up times for them to be in a location at the hotel where people can come and ask questions and hear this presentation.
More on this later.
I have asked Dr. Torres if he could also address this at the symposium.

You can arrange for your shuttle re the airport but until you get your times for appointments, you cannot arrange for the shuttle for the hospital.

Lots of people are going to the hospital for appointments and it is not far away so you can work out shuttle for this when you get there.
