EDS Wellness was thrilled and humbled to have received approval for 15 Continuing Medical Education Credits (CMEs) for the attendees of our 2017 Physicians Learning Conference – our 1st official physicians learning conferences an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. A pretty incredible start to the work we plan to do and a testimony to the work that we have already done and are currently doing!

Information on our CME approval and on how attendees and speakers of the 2017 Physicians Learning Conference can submit for retroactive credit is provided below. Additionally, we’ve included links to other continuing medical education and professional opportunities as well.

Questions or issues concerning retroactive approval for your CME activity or other CME-related matters, please contact AAFP directly: 1-800-274-2237 ext. 6591 or [email protected].

Because EDS Wellness is a growing organization, projects, and even simple tasks such as emails, often take more time than anticipated or promised. We cannot thank everyone enough for your patience, understanding, and support! Currently, we are working to finalize all materials from the physicians learning conference (and Wellapalooza 2017). As soon as we have received all edited videos back, have uploaded all the presentation slides and presentation recordings, we will post details and links. The current estimate we’ve received from our video editor is sometime towards the end of next week — bearing no major editing or upload issues. Attendees and speakers of our 2017 Physicians Learning Conference will receive an email with all materials, as promised. We are continuing to develop and build upon our strong foundation, while also working towards the completion of several large and long-standing projects. We are also working towards new initiatives, such as establishing telemedicine opportunities, a funding program to help patients with out-of-pocket costs to see providers in our community, holding additional continuing medical education activities, and conducting research on integrative therapies to help patients live well.

Additionally, we have submitted for approval to use the materials from the 2017 Physicians Learning Conference as an “enduring” CME credit for healthcare providers — i.e. available online and on an ongoing basis. We expect to receive an initial “pending approval” soon; however, we are anticipating the need to submit additional information and the quizzes required before each online CME activity receives final approval. All online-approved continuing medical education activities, conference recordings, patient education video series, recordings of our online classes and more, will be available through our e-learning platform on the EDS Wellness website. We are excited to add even more resources to our newly reorganized & soon-to-be-launched website — including our new online learning platform!

Last, a huge thank you to our collaborative nonprofit partners, our sponsors, our speakers, Dr. Delia Chiaramonte, member of EDS Wellness’ Board of Directors, and the University of Maryland’s Department of Complementary Medicine and Integrative Medicine for an amazing collaboration which helped us provide CMEs at our 2017 Physicians Learning Conference!
