Dear GNSI friends,

I am excited to provide a little advertisement for our Medical Topics presentation at the GNSI / Santa Cruz Conference!

A flock of Northern California medical illustrators will discuss a surprisingly broad array of topics that are currently engaging us.  These will be short talks, commencing at 3:30 on Independence Day.  If you are medically curious, come feel the pulse of the profession!

Here's a little preview:
