NIHB would like to thank all of the speakers, facilitators and trainers that came to share their expertise and experiences with Summit attendees. The Summit featured over 40 breakout sessions and over 80 speakers. NIHB has collected presentations from almost all of the presentation during the Summit to share. They have been organized by the Summit track or event under which they were housed.
