MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

Many thanks to the VRARA for giving us free access to this week’s AR conference. It was an extraordinary event and well worth the price of our membership to be able to attend. The talks and panels on healthcare applications were excellent and hugely valuable for Amalgamated Vision. We’re looking forward to participating in the VRARA Healthcare Committee.
— Paula Katkin, Amalgamated Vision
