Thank you for attending this week-long virtual conference! We enjoyed being able to provide 21.25 continuing education credits, along with graduate student poster presentations. Access to conference session links and conference materials will be available to view until July 1, 2021, therefore attendees can earn continuing education credits until that date. 

All registered conference attendees will receive post-conference communication via email with information including the conference session links and the link to the Conference folder with conference powerpoints and materials.
