Congress registration is for two days, which will give you access to the keynote presentations, general and afternoon sessions, sponsored evening workshops, exhibit hall, networking reception, raffle drawings, and breakfast.
How many credit hours will I acquire for attending the lectures?
Global Education Group designates this live activity for a maximum of 13 CME/CE credits (1.3 CEUs) for the two days. Attendees should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. For more information, click here.
How do I get my CME certificate?
An email including the online evaluation form and post-test will be sent after the congress. Both the online evaluation and post-test are required to receive continuing education credit.
Can I pop in and out of the afternoon sessions?
You can choose to attend any lecture in the afternoon, during any session; you do not have to stay in one session the entire afternoon. As an example, if you are interested in listening to a stem cell lecture in one session at 1 p.m., but would like to listen to a nutrition lecture at 1:45 p.m. in a different session, you may do so.
What are the evening-sponsored workshops?
Don't miss the non-CME workshops offered each day of the conference at 6:15 p.m. These workshops engage in an intensive discussion on particular topics, and there is no registration required. Gain more information on commercial brands and novel research during these 45-minute sessions.
Will slide presentations be provided?
You can download all slides from the A4M mobile app, so make sure you download the app to your phone. You will also receive a flash drive with the slides, at registration.
