    This was such a wonderful event, and I was grateful to be able to moderate.
    Almost 100 people registered for this event!  We ran into a technical glitch, but were back on our feet again and I think all that had signed in were able to get back on.  With all the confusion, we may not have been successful in getting a recording - I will update when I know more.

    I want to thank Christine Pelosi and Rita Ormsby for assisting with the event, and give a shout out to our wonderful presenters.  If you don't already know their work, it is not to late.
