CE Webinar | Gestational Diabetes

In light of cancellation of all live events, we were able to pull together our CE for the 24th of March and place it online. The CE will still be ACPE accredited for CE credits but will only be occurring from 7PM-8PM. If you are still interested, you can sign up via the link below.

To Earn CE Credit
You will be required to log into the gotowebinar using the above URL, attend the full presentation, and complete a post-activity evaluation form to receive credit. The evaluation form will be included as an attachment in the webinar. After the evaluation form is completed, you must return it April 3rd to Maria Lieggi maria@wsparx.org at the Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA) to have your CE uploaded. ​

WSPA will upload the CE credit to the CPE Monitor. WSPA only has 60 days to upload the CE from the initial date of the training, so it is recommended that attendees check their CPE Monitor 1-2 weeks prior to the 60 day deadline in order to verify the status of their credit for presentations attended. After the 60 day deadline, the CE cannot be uploaded to the CPE Monitor.​
