    Hi Ghada, your presentation sounds awesome unfortunately I will not attend this year's convention. I am sure there will be lots of people in your session. I would love to hear more about this method. Are there links or handouts that I could have access to so I can learn more about? I hope we can keep in touch.  Thanks!

    Hi, Ghada:

    Your strategy sounds intriguing. I would love to learn more but will not be able to go to the conference. Will you post an article or information about your presentation after the conference for those of us who can't make it?
