Quote from a NECHA 2014 attendees: "I enjoyed being able to learn information, and hear perspectives, from all different types of professionals. Working primarily in health promotion, I was able to learn a lot from the medical and clinical staff." "Just writing to tell you how much I enjoyed our wonderful 2014 Annual Meeting: Making Waves in College Health. I can see how much work was put into it, and thank you very much for everything. The networking and the diverse learning experiences were phenomenal! This was my first NECHA Meeting and I was quite impressed."
