  Spring CEC Meeting April 30 - Update with information to join virtually

posted: March 18, 2020

MPTA Clinical Education Consortium Members,

As our health care systems, state and nation continue to respond to COVID-19, we have made the following changes for our upcoming CEC meeting on April 30, 2020. At this time, we plan to proceed with a virtual meeting via the GoToMeeting platform; please use the link listed below. However, we are changing the previously scheduled content and are leaving our agenda fluid as to best serve the needs of the CEC as the meeting approaches. If you have specific topics you would like addressed, please email either Co-President (Karen Berg or Ashley Van Dam) to have it added to the agenda. As the pandemic continues to evolve and changes occur rapidly, we feel that developing and sharing the agenda more closely to the time of the event would ensure that topics are relevant and timely, thus bringing the most value to our members. Please look for this agenda ~1 week prior to the virtual meeting.


*Also of note, the WMCEF Clinical Education Continuing Education Offering scheduled at Spectrum Health for April 18, 2020 has been postponed. We are looking at alternative date and formatting options and will update both the registrants and membership of this change as soon as possible once the details are finalized.
