#MEAction UNREST CME Program Kick-Off Call-- October 25, 2018

East Coast USA
#MEAction and the "Time for UNREST Campaign" are making the award-winning documentary film available for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit in the US.

Healthcare providers – doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and social workers– can watch UNREST and receive continuing education credits (CE) through the American Medical Women’s Association and Indiana University School of Medicine.

Join us for a discussion on how you can use the UNREST CME program to educate healthcare providers about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). We will discuss both hosting UNREST public screenings and the individual online training available for medical providers.
