Tuesday, April 14
Use the morning to network with those in the pregnancy help community and explore the exhibit hall and join us for our opening lunch where we'll officially kick off the conference. 

  • Registration and Exhibit Hall
  • Opening Lunch & Peg Talks (7)
    Named for long-time Heartbeat President and former college professor Peggy Hartshorn, Ph.D., each “PEG Talk” is a 7-minute stage presentation introducing a specific concept providing an inspirational message that can live as a stand-alone message and be a preview into an expanded, interactive Deeper Dive session which could follow.
  • Deeper Dive - Interactive Peg Talks Sessions (7)
    Each Deeper Dive session expands upon the topics introduced during the PEG Talk. This 2-hour session will be interactive and provide practical solutions to the problem. Each PEG Talk presenter agrees to present both the 7-minute Talk and the 2-hour Deeper Dive with a more focused group.

    Example: Ellen gives a 7 minute PEG Talk at a general session to the entire conference audience introducing the topic of Cultural Diversity and the need for it within communities.

    Following the general session, people have the option to join her in a 2-hour Deeper Dive session where she will review the definition, interact with her audience using Q&A and exercises to discover what and how they understand Cultural Diversity, and provide a practical application plan and tools to ensure that each organization’s representative is equipped to go home and can implement what was learned.
