Great time

This was my second time at Rocky Gap. I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet new friends and reconnect with old. It was also great to meet all those who have been through the process. The Ph.D.s who were present were inspirational; not only did some present information in a formal way but those who mingled with us were also very great. I can't recall the last time I had so many Ph.D. grads ask specific questions about where I was in the process and offer advice on moving forward. Dr. Idalais who I'd never met before was great; she reminded me of the benefits of PROMISE and the strength we have as a group. I can't wait for the next PROMISE opportunity!!!
