The CE certificate says I took this at the 2017 conference - but I wasn't there! I've handwritten a correction on my certificate indicating I took the course online. Perhaps you could change the certificate???

The certificate also doesn't mention the 0.3hrs of pharmacology CE... I need pharm CEUs!

Amazing presentation. I have seen this condition more than 3 times and realized with metabolic syndrome and the obesity epidemic that we will be seeing it more which is unfortunately coming to fruition..
