Presentations from the 2022 UMCVB Fall Conference

Please see below for a list of sessions from this year’s conference in Champaign.  Following each session will be a link to slides if it was provided.  Please note: we are still getting access to presentations and they will be added as they become available.  If “No Slides” is listed that means it was a discussion session and did not have slides during that session so there will be none added.
