Lunch & Learn Series

The new Lunch & Lunch series is a 1-hour live webinar over the lunch hour from 11:30 pm - 12:30 pm CST.  Lunch & Learns will be held the first week of the month, on rotating days of the week.

Lunch & Learns set the foundation for further learning and exploration, allowing therapists to be introduced to new areas of practice or expand their knowledge by understanding the latest research and recommendations related to topics. 

Recordings of the webinars will be available for view for 2 weeks following the release of the recording; generally the recording is released within one week of the event.
