AMDA's 2019 Annual Conference

Mar 7, 2019 ‐ Mar 10, 2019

Experience the education sessions from The Society's 2019 Annual Conference from the comfort of your own home!

Education sessions at the annual conference are recorded, synchronized with the audio and presentation PowerPoint handouts, and can be experienced either via online streaming or USB formats. CME/CMD credits are available for sessions with the online streaming format.

With over 60 educational sessions, it's impossible to attend all the offerings of interest to you that will be presented at the 2019 annual conference. By purchasing the recordings, you can still "attend" the sessions after the conference. Recorded sessions are perfect for sharing education with those in your facility who could not make it to the conference or for catching up on those sessions that you were not able to attend. The Society offers different formats of the recordings so that you can select what is best for you:

  • Conference Recordings Digital Format - Access the 2019 conference sessions from our PALTC library online website. CME/CMD credits are available for this option.
  • Conference Recordings Multimedia USB 
  • Conference Special - Receive both the access to the Digital format AND the USB of the education sessions. CME/CMD credits are available viewing the online recordings.
