What is the presentation in Wichita, and why do I have to set up so early?

A panel discussion will address what it is really like to practice in rural and underserved urban Kansas. Panelists will share their practice experience. The main audience for the presentation is medical students. The panel will take place from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Boathouse. Therefore, no exhibitors will be allowed to set up their displays during this time.  Exhibitors are invited to attend the presentation.
