Category I continuing education contact hours (CECH) will be applied for from the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC). Sponsored by The Towson University Department of Health Sciences. 


The annual conference features our traditional day long educational program with keynote, policymaker panel, plenary, lunch, and breakout sessions. We expect to offer the same program that was originally planned for the fall.
