Live Chats for Rethinking Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing

November 29–December 11, 2023 | 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, you can watch the chat recording before the last day of the conference. You may report for CE credit for either the live chat or the recording, but not both.
