That’s a Wrap — Critical Mass Annual Conference 2014
Although this year’s Critical Mass Annual Conference was dubbed “AYA Snowpocalypse 2014” before half the nearly 200 attendees were wheels down in Denver, perhaps the silver lining was the pervasive feeling that people were really, really excited to be in attendance—a feeling and energy that lasted throughout the entire meeting. After all, what would make you happier about being somewhere than surviving a life-threatening cab ride from the airport?….
…The 2014 Critical Mass Annual Conference was said by several attendees to be the best one yet, with superior educational opportunities, multiple networking avenues and a unique culture fostering true collaboration, innovation and progress. This is how we move forward, working together, sharing goals, pooling resources, data and information, and never forgetting why we do this work. Many have said that this event is where they come to be inspired, to find co-investigators, collaborators, mentors, new hires and colleagues, in the truest sense of the word. This year, we strengthened our ties as a robust network of organizations, institutions and individuals wholly committed to young adults with cancer, working on the front lines and the cutting edge, together.
