Why attend the ASET Annual Conference?
People always ask me what I do, and I cannot wait to tell them. At first, they are interested but after about a minute I can see their eyes starting to glaze over! This does not stop me from going on and on about what is so amazing about Neurodiagnostics though. One of the things I love about the Annual Conference is, no one glazes over, and they even participate in the conversation! Every time I come home from a conference I feel energized. There is something about meeting with a group of individuals who love the world of Neurodiagnostics as much as I do. We have opportunities to bounce ideas off of each other and help each other with troubleshooting any issues that may have arisen in our labs. We are a team no matter what state we come from!
Each time that I attend the ASET Annual Conference I become a stronger, more confident technologist. I am able to bring things back to our lab that improve patient care and help our lab to be the best that it can be. In addition, I am able to keep information fresh, by helping others to troubleshoot and learn. I enjoy the learning part of Annual Conference as much as I enjoy the teaching part. There is something for everyone at the conference and I would encourage every technologist to go if they have the chance.
