IAPD Webinars are BACK!

IAPD members now have a chance to join live webinars by guest speakers on a range of issues.

The biggest, unique benefit of joining a live webinar is the way in which content is explained: unlike recordings or other online educational material, the presentation of a webinar is more intimate. It almost functions like a personal tutoring session with feedback, questions, and engagement between the audience and the presenters.

Join us for our upcoming webinars!
