I am so grateful for the opportunity to advance my clinical knowledge and collaborate with peers nationwide. Thank you for creating this space for us to learn and grow!

I benefited from all the conference activities. In particular, I gained valuable information about nocturia at various sessions. This is a chief complaint of many of my patients, and I learned so much about the etiology and strategies for making behavioral or medication changes to help patients.
