The Conference Center at Waltham Woods

Waltham, Massachusetts

“This conference was a great representation of team-based care. I do not think there is enough crossover between professions throughout the healthcare space, so this truly was a breath of fresh air. It was an amazing opportunity to learn and to collaborate. My favorite sections were actually of the lawyers and case managers since that is so far out of the norm for me.”

Kayla Roche, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist, ATI Physical Therapy

“I always come back to work so jazzed after this conference. I was just sharing all my new wisdom with my colleagues.”


“I have been to many conferences over many years of nursing and this IS THE BEST!! The content of the presentations is always relevant to my practice and I learn new approaches I can apply to my most difficult claims. I Had such a great time -enjoyed the varied speakers and the food was excellent.”

“As with previous years, I thoroughly enjoyed this conference; always learning something new and coming away energized after spending two days networking with faculty and attendees.”

Dr. Mary A. Taschner, DNP, ANP-BC

Someone said to me at the conference, “I’m sorry to have never met Lew Millender.”  I replied, “yes you have.” And I swept my hand and arm around the room that was buzzing at lunch on Tuesday with the most incredible energy – joy – laughter – and passionate conversations. “This is Lew Millender.”   …[This conference has] helped to preserve a tradition that goes beyond one man, to a philosophy of compassionate care for each and every injured worker who is touched by one of the many disciplines associated with this conference.

Clinical Psychologist, Dept of Medicine, New England Baptist Hospital

I was blown away by the recent WC conference in Waltham…. It was wonderful to see that the recommendations I had made last year made it into the program this year.  The segments addressing alternative to opioid therapy were very well done.  It delighted me to see surgeons giving psychiatrists and psychologists a standing ovation!!!

Dr. Mary A. Taschner, DNP, ANP-BC

Thank you all for the unique stimulating presentations. We have and continue to grow a network of diverse ingredients to bring to the workers’ compensation executive kitchen. We can all work to improve our techniques and try new ones in our daily interactions. I’m incredibly appreciative of that personally and professionally.

It was filled with relevant topics and a great group of speakers and panelists. I’ve been a WC Claims Professional for 30 years now. I’ve worked in different roles with different employers of industry beyond managing a WC Claim. I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge and experience that I enjoy sharing with people.

Always a thrill to mingle and learn from the greatest minds in the WC business!!

I will be back next year! Everyone LOVED [our product], from PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, case managers, and doctors. It was a huge success for me.
