This is the first post of our new series on our upcoming Annual Conference. Over the next 6 weeks we will be featuring bios on the wonderful speakers we have lined up to present throughout the 2-day meeting. This will give you a chance to read a bit more about each person and plan which talks to attend!


Martina Cartwright is currently the President/CEO of Beacon Science Inc. Biomedical Consulting as well as being self-employed for a consulting firm based in Scottsdale, AZ. She has participated in a great deal of research on topics from trauma/critical care to behavioral reasons for childhood obesity and everything in between.
