To provide geriatric focused continuing education in Arkansas, we provide at least four webinar/video conferences annually that can be viewed in person, at a remote location hosting the program and via live streaming from any computer with internet capabilities.

These programs are generally two-hour programs with free CEs for a variety of licensed health professionals including physicians, nursing, social workers, physical therapy, dietetics, occupation therapy and long term care administrators.

Email agec@uams.edu with subject line “Subscribe to AGEC” to receive emails on free CE events.

Attending CE events from your computer are easy through UAMS Blackborad Collaborate.  Once you view the program, come back to agec.uams.edu to complete your CE documents online.
