The Chuck Pearson Scholarship Award allowed me to attend the 2023 LTEN Conference in Phoenix AZ, where I met and networked with a variety of industry professionals while learning about the Life Science Training Industry. It opened my eyes to a wide range of learning opportunities that impact my work directly. From tips for onboarding new hires to engaging with vendors, my industry has expanded in ways I could never imagine. ~ Ama Agumeh, 2023 Pearson Scholarship Recipient
