Welcome & Opening Keynote

Endure: The Life and Art of Paul Klee
Richard M. Silver, M.D., Medical University of South Carolina

Paul Klee, one of the 20th Century’s most important artists, lived with systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). Klee’s life was fascinating and, at times, tragic. His art is an expression of his time and the disease he so bravely endured.

Closing Keynote

UNSTOPPABLE: When Strong is All There Is
Betsy Craig, public speaker, author and Founder of MenuTrinfo, LLC

After falling ill from scleroderma in the early to mid-2000s, Betsy Craig had to find a strength she did not know was there. Being UNSTOPPABLE was her only option, and in the end, she credits her success with business, disease, and life with that exact trait, being UNSTOPPABLE.  In 2018, she released her first book, UNSTOPPABLE: A Recipe for Success in Life and Business.
