PDH Codes

To obtain the PDH credit, participants must register their attendance at each session for which they are requesting credit. A numeric session-specific code will be assigned to each session and only those who participate will have access to the code. As a speaker, you need to announce the PDH code at the beginning and end of your presentation. Additionally, we prefer you include it on your first and last slides. The list of PDH codes will be posted here in February. Please do not give these codes or this link to anyone else!
