Day of Event Details

Event Day Information

A couple days prior to the start of the course, you will receive communications via the email address you registered with, as long as you accepted email notifications*. These communications will include the virtual platform login link. Please login to the virtual platform no later than 9:00am Central Time each day. The course will begin promptly at 9:00am CT each day and conclude between 2:00pm-2:30pm each day. Frequent, brief breaks are built into the agenda (see planned agenda below).

Participation in the Live presentation of each topic is the only option to earn CEU/CME credits. Attendance is tracked using your individual platform login via email. Partial credit for this course can be awarded if you are not able to attend all three days. Appropriate credit will be awarded on your certificate based on our attendance report.

In addition to attendance during the live stream presentations, completion of a post-course evaluation is required to obtain a CEU/CME certificate. We value your feedback and completion of the evaluation helps us identify what you felt was beneficial in this course, where we need to make improvements and provides helpful information relating to our topics and expert speakers. A link to the evaluation will be included at the end of the last session on the last day. Completion of the evaluation is confidential; however, names are requested so that the CEU/CME certificates can be awarded.

*If you opted out of receiving email from the Lung Association you WILL NOT receive course communications. You can edit your preferences by logging back into your account on Lung.org.
