Meeting in person?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone on the forum has ever met in person with other members? I love having the forum to talk with people, but sometimes I think it would be nice to know if anyone lives close to me or would like to meet in person.

    some of the moderators meet in person. They had a great time together. Like you said, virtual communications is one thing, but nothing is better than one on one conversations.

    Ok, Kate, where do you live? Maybe some others are close by

    It was 6 years ago now, I travelled from London to America to stay at the home of a Spine-health member in Cornish Maine, we met up with a few other members one travelled from Massachusetts, another from Rhode Island and one who also lived in Maine.
    We had a good time and I was shown Maine during my 3 weeks stay.

  • Liz I don't know why but that surprises me you are so far away and I think that is great.
    I am from Utah and would love to communicate or when better and able to get around meet with others.
    So if you are from this area send me a PM if you want. I have met some wonderful people on here and also
    have had some I considered friends disappear which is hard.
    Take care Sherri

    The Spine-Health office is in Deerfield,
    I have great old friends that live in Lisle
    And since I spent so much time at IBM school in Chicago, that became my second home.

    Oh wow, I didn't realize the office was in IL. I live in Champaign, IL which is 2.5 hours south of Deerfield.
