I just returned from the CFI Conference in Amherst, after graciously being given a travel grant for myself and four members of our group, and it was amazing. I learned a lot, but perhaps more importantly, was given the optimism to take the resources they provided and use them. There is certainly an impetus, given the current climate of politics, anti-scientific attitudes, anti-intellectualism, dogmatic and unyielding allegiance to archaic and dusty scrolls of unknown origins…etc
Thanks to the CFI for everything. I will be checking in on this forum as time permits.
