months we are having our Fall Symposium October 
26th, 27th and 28th in Cranberry PA near 
Pittsburgh.  We still space available if you wish 
to join us for a fun meeting with a variety of 
seminars and workshops.  We have everything from 
autopsy through bog mummies, IHC for beginners 
and advanced classes and frozen sectioning for 
general and Mohs surgery.  Want to learn about
