Spring Institute

CASP would like to thank the presenters, corporate members and attendees for a very successful Spring Institute 2016. A very special thank you goes out to keynote speaker Dr. Todd Savage, NASP president, and to the student monitors and student strand presenters. We could not have done it without you!

Check the Events tab above to see the handouts and PowerPoint presentations from many of the sessions at Spring Institute. Congratulations to Jenny Ponzuric and Jennifer Rocobado, winners of MHS test kits at the Thursday Welcome Reception and to Jennifer Beasley and David Hill, winners of test kits from PAR.

Handouts from nearly all workshops are available on the Events page. Next Spring Institute will be held March 23-25, 2017 in Santa Rosa.
