“I come to these symposiums because THMA Consulting is always on the leading edge of patient safety, which to me is our top priority in nursing. This field is constantly changing so coming here to learn about new evidence-based practices is the best way to keep up-to-date.” – Beverley Postill 

“We can share with others doing the same line of work and experiencing the same issues we face on a day-to-day basis. The products are changing, the areas of the face are we are treating are evolving. Symposiums are a great way to connect with fellow colleagues.”  – Jacklyn Sudetic
