Disclaimer: The Virtual Journal Club is a free learning and networking opportunity offered by IAHC. At this time, IAHC is not able to offer CE credits without partnering with a CE provider. 

Participants attending Virtual Journal Club sessions will earn a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours after completing the program evaluation.  The certificate does not include a CE provider number and therefore may not meet all professional continuing education requirements. We encourage you to check with your state and certifying organization(s) to determine specific CEU requirements
