Due to the travel restrictions and quarantine mandate in Hawaii, which are expected to extend beyond the current fall expiration, it is not possible to come together in the Aloha state this year for Summer in December.
It is our pleasure to announce that in partnership with DCOnline, UWS is offering the Summer in December program virtually! Our speakers, Dr. Bill Moreau, Dr. Bev Harger and Lori Holt, will be providing 10 hours of continuing education that can be taken at your own pace, from the safety and comfort of your own home or office. There is also the option to add an additional 10 hours of continuing education from DCOnline. This additional 10 hour interactive package – The Spine in Sport and Probiotics-Today’s Research – has been selected to accompany the Summer in December Program. This is an excellent opportunity to meet annual CE requirements.
We hope that you can join us in 2020 as we move our program from Hawaii to the cloud!
