book of the month

The selected books focus on our program theme, and most are authored by our conference speakers. There is one virtual meeting per book, which is scheduled to discuss its highlights and implications. Rather than having a discussion with the author, the discussion will be facilitated by another clinician with an interest and expertise on the topic who might bring additional perspectives to the discussion. Participants should read the book prior to the discussion to enjoy a full, interactive learning experience—or attend and listen to determine if you want to read the book later! The first book discussion on September 19 offers CME/CE/CEUs, but the others do not.
