The event opened with a brief introduction by Board Member and Event Chair, Pamela Krause, MSW, LCSW, followed by one-word greetings from all board members (their favorite “Self-C” word), and a presentation by Vice Chair Frank Anderson, MD, with an update on research and the planned global Take5 Media Campaign.
