Dear CSS Members and Colleagues: As some of you may know I am currently at Harvard Business School and while I’ll have a lot to share later, this article was so impactful I felt it important to share with you all.

Val d'Isere Shoulder Course 2019

Dear CSS Members: I wanted to make you aware of one of the best shoulder educational programs in the world. This is near and dear to my heart as I have been a part of it since 2001. Unfortunately, I have a conflict with my executive program at Harvard Business School so I can’t go this year. But you all should take a look at the program and really consider how much it will offer to you, and more importantly your patients. I hope you attend as this only comes around once every 2 years.
