Continuing Education, May and June 2021
We are pleased to offer affordable opportunities for health professionals. OUR MAY 21-23, 2021 (Ypsilanti/Detroit MI and virtual simulcast) AND JUNE 25-27. 2021 (Raleigh NC and virtual simulcast) CONFERENCES ARE OFFERING IDENTICAL CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS. Except for ABLM in-person credits which are specific to the in-person setting, everything on this page applies to EITHER in-person or virtual registration for EITHER 2021 conference.
