ENRICH Scholarship Winner

"I had an excellent opportunity to attend ENRICH 2019. My flying all the way from India was worth an effort! The program matches its name and enriched my experience in number of ways. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of my training at ENRICH and brought back lots of good memories and new learning to implement in my country."

ENRICH Scholarship Winner

"ENRICH is an excellent experience to learn and practice new communication skills and to ponder the thoughts that drive communication, whether in a patient or student encounter or in conversations across difference. The faculty, speakers and facilitators model the skills they teach, which is invaluable for learning quickly within the timeframe of the conference. Moreover, that role modeling creates a relationship- centered environment that makes pushing your learning limits feel safe and truly effective."
