Thank You UI 2015

To all who attended the 2015 Understanding Interventions Conference in San Diego, thank you for your contributions, energy, and spirit. This community is growing and evolving because of you. That you find value in crossing disciplines to apply research to practice makes our collective efforts memorably worthwhile.

A special shout-out goes to the first UI award recipients—Clifton Poodry (The Intervenor Award) and Claudia Rankins (The “Tol” Award). You epitomize what UI is all about.

Anthony DePass and Daryl Chubin, Co-chairs
