CONTINUING EDUACTION UNITS FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS (CEUs)

if you have further questions.
The fees for CEUs is $25 per day (5 credits each day) or $65 for all three days (15 credits). Many conferences do not charge extra because the fees are built into the registration fees. In an effort to keep our registration fees low, we do not charge everyone but charge the individuals using this service.

Chiropractors (DCs): Sought approval from the Texas Chiropractic College. But the paperwork required is so involved that it is unreasonable for us to do it. It would be a burden on our speakers.
