AAPD Education on Demand

July 2020 Volume LV Number 4

The AAPD continues to provide relevant continuing education courses designed to meet your needs. The CE course calendar for 2019-20 was a full and successful one based on the attendance figures and favorable participant evaluations. We thank the CE Course Faculty for the time they take to create meaningful handouts and presentations, plus the time away from their professional and personal lives. Their dedication to providing high-quality continuing education is the driving factor behind the success of the AAPD CE courses.
