Program Information

Assistance Needed

What assistance might your group/program need to better obtain your objective(s) (e.g., identifying potential speakers, gathering information, obtaining publications, etc.)?
It would be helpful to have an in-depth conversation with someone from your organization to discuss the planning and development of this initiative. We would also be happy to share the resource guide and research report that were developed in the fall of 2006.
