Carolina Perfusion Symposium

The Carolina perfusion symposium which is hosted by both PerfusionLife and the Palmetto State Perfusion Society, enjoyed a fantastic convention this year with 88 perfusionists and over 20 vendors. PerfusionLife’s own Ken Ingersoll presided over the meeting as president of the Palmetto State Perfusion Society. Together, they procured an exciting line up of speakers covering a wide array of intriguing topics.
Family and friends also enjoyed the hotel amenities as well as planned activities for children, such as face painting, art projects, and a magician.
