Day of Event Details

Event Day Information

The Friday before the course begins (April 7th), you will receive communications via the email address you registered with, as long as you accepted email notifications*. These communications will include your course access link. We recommend you try logging in to the virtual platform as soon as you get that access link to begin exploring the information, resources, and engagement opportunities.

IMPORTANT information about earning CEU/CME credits: Attendance is tracked using your unique platform login. You will only earn CEU/CME credits for the live stream presentation of each topic you attend. While session recordings will be available to registered attendees at the end of each day, you cannot earn CEU/CME for watching recordings on-demand. 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.

*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
