Believe it or not, it was 1838 when 3D technology was born. We've clearly made it a long way since; being able to have The Jetsons-style video calls is something that was once so futuristic that Saturday morning cartoons blew our minds with the very concept.
What's most compelling about all of the constantly-expanding technology is that it doesn't do the trick when we want to have good old-fashioned water cooler talk, the kind of talk those of us who ran the 9-5 office gauntlet once took for granted. There's nothing like the quality of an in-person laugh over one that is cut up by static and the repeated query, "Can you guys hear me?", the response to which is so often, "Nope, you're on mute."
That's why we're so excited to be hanging around having Coffee Talk in Boston next month. We'd love to be able to talk about advances in the field, but we're more excited to be able to have the option of shaking your hand (after hand sanitizing, of course) and give you some of our killer new swag, something we haven't had the chance to design in 4 years.
And while we know time together is much more valuable than swag itself, there's nothing like packing your suitcase with some shiny things in tandem with the best practices you'll apply to your program as you fly back to your home base and build on the important work you do to help clinicians, and by proxy, their patients.
So please do come on out! And if you can't make it, please join us via LiveStream, whether you can only attend one session or the whole she-bang. Register on our Conference Series page and come spend time with us--it's a rare treat these days, and maybe that's one benefit to having had in-person time be scarce these past few years. But that's part of the NaRCAD Team's tendency to look at opportunity over setbacks.
We'd love to share that energy with you in just a few weeks.
