Qualified as ABLM/ACLM In-person Learning
CE Credits As Usual
This conference will provide continuing education credits as does any other P-POD Conference to physicians, nurses, dietitians etc. as detailed HERE.
Lifestyle Medicine Credentialing
There is a 10 hour "in-person learning" prerequisite of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine for taking their November-December 2021 ABLM / ACLM Diplomate examinations. This conference was designed specifically to meet that requirement. All other lifestyle medicine certifying requirements are described HERE or HERE.
From early spring to July 29, 2021, the "in-person learning" rule stated that only two 2021 U.S. events (including P-POD's originally scheduled October in-person conference) could be used to meet that requirement. On July 30, ABLM and ACLM stated that due to worsening COVID-19 trends, virtual conversions of qualified in-person conferences would be substituted in meeting the requirement. Therefore, Oct. 23-24, 2021 P-POD is now being presented virtually, in a Pacific-time-friendly schedule (presentations begin 12:45 pm Eastern Saturday and 10:15 am Eastern Sunday).
Costs / Registration
P-POD's Oct. 23-24, 2021 virtual conference retains its stellar speaker roster and agenda content, but is being expanded to 13 educational hours, and all registration rates are being cut from "in-person" levels to the attractive lower rates we have used for earlier virtual conferences. (Existing registrations are being converted to virtual, with partial refunds automatically being made.) We are proud to continue providing affordable pathways in this area of lifestyle medicine credential prequalifying. Registration rates and information are HERE. LOWER ADVANCE PRICES EXPIRE SEPT. 30TH!
Certificates for Exam Purposes
CME (Continuing Medical Education) certificates for AMA PRA Category 1™ credits that are awarded for this conference would be presented by you to ABLM or ACLM as part of your credentialing process, if you are pursuing their exams. The existing agenda was already approved for 12 CMEs, and the expanded 13-hour agenda was resubmitted to authenticate the 1-hour credit adjustment. CME certificates will be provided 30 days before the earliest ABLM exam day available. ABLM requires you to send them a record of these CME credits before they release to you the results of your completed exam.
