Hello there Hometown Booth Volunteers:
Ok...I know you are sick of hearing from me but thank you for opening the email. I was at the Sheraton today to drop off the raffle tickets with Gayle and Hillary and we received a little tour of where everything will be. Our booth will be a floor down from where the lobby and registration desk is by the salons where the sessions will be held. We will be right in the middle of the two escalators on the river side so there will be a beautiful view in back of us.
Thank you all again for volunteering...You are all awesome. I look forward to seeing you all in a few days.

She needs to go see Dr. Marc Singer in the colorectal clinic at UIC. He is
a specialist in rectal and anal problems and is working with a WHNP
faculty to open a women's clinic for these issues. He is young, and very
nice. Barb Camune
