Over 1,200 people will be traveling to Louisville for the AAHPM Intensive Board Review Course, and the burning question on everyone’s mind is … where am I going to eat? Or is it… what am I going to do? Actually, with the packed schedule of educational sessions, food is more likely to be something of an afterthought.
