is the best online education in long term care and this year, as a value-added benefit, this introductory CME Program is offered at no cost to 2008 Annual Symposium attendees. And, uniquely in 2008, non-attendees also receive free CME included in the fee to access to AMDA’s Online Library. CME and CMD information is available by clicking on each individual session.
