    I notice that MD’s do not get CME. does this mean this is not targeted to MD’s?

    • Ellen: Great question about CMEs!

      We would love to provide CMEs for our trainings and webinars—-all of which are applicable and vital for educating physicians. Unfortunately, the CME application process is cost-intensive. However, we are actively searching for a partner organization to “sponsor” us as a CME provider so we can provide CMEs for more of our education opportunities.

      Please stay tuned—-as soon as we are able to offer CMEs we will make an announcement through our email list.

      P.S. If you know of a CME sponsor, please let us know!

    • Great question! Go ahead and register/pay for the webinar. After the webinar we send a video link to registrants to view for up to 30 days.

      Keep in mind we can only award CEUs to people who are logged into the live webinar and participate and engage by asking questions. – Liz
