At the end, about 55 participants responded to a survey. 99 percent of which said they would attend another seminar. 
“We were very happy with the event,” said MJ Heltsley, Auburn Journal Advertising Director and Major Accounts Sales Manager. “It provided us (The Auburn Journal) the opportunity to start the conversation with our readers.  The partnership with Sutter Auburn Faith provided us the opportunity to continue that conversation with the community. The medical professionals on the panel were informative. They provided top line information on many topics and answered questions in detail to the audience at the event. We look forward to the next event. Stay tuned for new topics.”
