Testimonials

This is probably the best conference I’ve ever been to. The motivational speakers are outstanding. You’re just left with a really good feeling. And then the professional part of the program was outstanding as well. Some really top-notch speakers and their specialties and I felt like I learned a whole lot.
David Lovelace, DOEmergency Physician
I choose to come to EXPLORE because it’s well put together. It’s been organized from the top down very well. Every year the speakers have been very good. It makes me think beyond medicine. Sometimes it’s about adventure, sometimes it’s about crises but each time it pulls us out of our silos of medicine and puts it into a different mind thought. I also enjoy the camaraderie of people that I don’t see for maybe once a year, but people I’ve known for maybe 20 to 30 years.
Andrew Gin, MDNeurologist
EXPLORE provides a great avenue to meet with physicians and healthcare workers around the state to educate them on some of the newer things we have as far as technology and advances in treatment for cancer. PLICO has done a great job with this conference and getting their brand name out there.
