ACLS & CPR for Physician Assistants - American Heart Association Courses

We are pleased to announce that we will be providing attendees with the opportunity to renew their BLS and ACLS while at the conference. We know that it is often hard for you to take time out of your busy schedule to complete these tasks. We decided to make it easier. We have partnered with SAR Training & Consulting. You will need to contact them to make arrangements. They provide you with a link to complete your didactic training online. Then at the conference you will do a skills check session. Cards will be issued at the conference with successful completion. Contact Joyce Gabel at SAR Training & Consulting to arrange your renewal course at 636-284-0420 or via email.


The conference is casual; remember that rooms are air-conditioned. Please bring a sweater or jacket as it may be needed.
