Participate Live or On Demand, Earn CEUs
Those who register as a professional will have access to the Symposium sessions in a recorded format during a six-week period, July 19 to August 31. They may choose to join the live Symposium June 24 and 25 and interact with colleagues, or view later when their time allows. Only one registration is required whether attendees want to attend the live Symposium, the on-demand Symposium sessions, or a combination of both. Continuing education credit is available for both the live Symposium and on-demand content. Attendees to both the live and on-demand symposiums can earn up to 39.5 hours of CEUs.
