The BioTherapeutics, Education and Research (BTER) Foundation sponsors workshops to train health care providers in the Principles and Practice of Biotherapy. Workshop participants learn how, when, and why to use biotherapy effectively for their patients. Workshops include hands-on sessions, with live or mock patients. Some of the workshops are held in Southern California, near the Foundation office. Workshops are also presented in other regions of the country, produced in collaboration with universities, hospitals, and agencies.
