2009 Continuing Education Credit

The 2009 AATOD National Conference will award  Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education Hours (CEHs). Please see the back cover for specific information.

To apply for CMEs / CEHs, conference attendees must pay the associated fee, either in advance or at the on-site conference registration desk. Attendance at conference events will be verified electronically. Each attendee seeking CMEs / CEHs will have a bar code attached to his/her conference badge. At the end of EACH approved session, attendees must have the bar codes on their badges “scanned” by room monitors in order to record CME / CEH.
