What Our Alumni Say
"Taking the time to improve myself professionally is expected; however, taking the time to improve myself personally is a privilege. I expected to learn useful techniques at CAAMP but it was a privilege to genuinely feel a connection that will certainly have an impact in both my professional and personal life. Great conference and highly recommended!"
Naquilla Thomas, West Georgia Technical College
"One of the best things about CAAMP is that it brings educators from all different health disciplines together. This fosters an environment where we share best practices for similar challenges and pitfalls. I left this program with many pearls of wisdom that I could actively implement in my work life."
Mai-Ly Duong, Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health
