Lice Clinics of America’s booth was well received. Most nurses in the Portland area are familiar with our patented, FDA cleared technology. Nurses from around the state were excited that lice could be killed by using controlled heated air without any harmful chemicals or pesticides. They are looking forward to Lice Clinics of America Portland opening additional clinics around the state.
We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the conference and look forward to next year.
