With over 160 registered attendees (and counting), Tomorrow's webinar will be our chance to connect.
Firstly, while webinars are no true substitute for meeting in person, we would otherwise be missing out on opportunities for professional development, networking and growth for the foreseeable future, and that would be a negative for you and for the field of cardiac care.
Luckily, we've gotten a significant number of registrants for Thursday's virtual continuing education event - more than 160 so far - meaning, even though we're virtual, this will still be a really valuable event for all of us. Valuable not only because our panelists are absolutely stellar leaders of ACVP and cardiovascular care in general - more on them, below - but because YOU will be there, in numbers!
Audience members will have chances to engage and network with both the panelists and each other via YouTube's stream chat functions. Of course, we want as many people as possible to join us for this free cardiac continuing education webinar - so please share information about our event to your connections!
Again, you must register to earn continuing education credit.
