“The event was well attended with over 110 persons in attendance that interacted throughout the symposium via a live feed offering their thoughts and comments to the live discussion. This proved to be a great addition to this year’s symposium as moderator; Dwayne Caines was able to incorporate some of the comments as addendums [additions] to his original questions.
