It was lively, fun, and complete engaging start to finish. Extremely helpful and effective. You are performing a great service.”—Gina Thomas, Manager, U.S. Forest Service   “I have a painful wrist condition and wear a support band.

Your program is excellent and effective.”—JoAnn Baldwin, Executive Assistant to the Assistant Regional CommissionerSocial Security Administration, San Francisco Region     “Our employees include some of the country’s finest research scientists, and they gave this program top ratings.
