Controversies and Consensus in Dysphagia Management

March 9–21, 2022 | Online Conference

With online conferences you get the convenience of at-home learning combined with real-time access to speakers. Add these dates and times to your schedule!

All times listed are Eastern time.

This online conference will utilize live video chats. During each live chat, expert presenters and a moderator will address participant questions. A recording of each chat will be available for on-demand viewing. We encourage participants to attend live if at all possible, but if you have a schedule conflict, please post a question on the corresponding recorded session discussion board and then watch the chat recording before the last day of the conference. You may claim credit whether your question is addressed or not.
