Research is the key to a successful conference. Staff is happy to help delegates with their research as much as possible before the conference while allowing the delegates to exercise independent decision making during conferences.
If you are stuck in research, or if you want some more personal advice go to our Twitter (@MAMUNonline) or Facebook page where you can ask the staff, including your committee chairperson, or other delegates questions about your topic.
