Everyone at OWCN is getting geared up for Oilapalooza 2010, our annual Rehabilitation & Research Conference that starts tomorrow. Thanks in large part to Herculean efforts by Lavonne, our amazing administrator, we are ready to go despite all the challenges of planning a conference during the craziness of Deepwater Horizon. We’re looking forward to a fantastic program, with 21 talks in 5 sessions, and we have over 160 people registered! We’ll also have a panel discussion on the Deepwater Horizon spill, which no doubt will be well-attended. Mike is back from the Gulf, at least temporarily, so we’re all going to enjoy having him around. Our goal is to have lots of learning going on in the midst of a fun time; ambitious, perhaps, but I’m sure we can pull it off! Stay tuned . . . next week we’ll let you know how it went and hopefully have some pictures of the festivities.
