Time is Ticking, Earn Free CPE Credit Today!

It's that time of year when many health professionals are scrambling to calculate their CDR Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits to ensure they have the required number to remain in good standing with the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Not to worry! Registered dietitians and dietetic technicians, registered (DTR) can leap into May with plenty of time to get their required credits before the May 31 deadline.

Here's only a fraction of what the IFIC Foundation website, www.FoodInsight.org, offers those seeking CPE credits:

Exploring the Facts and Myths of Dietary Acrylamide: A CPE Opportunity

The Dietary Fats Makeover: Guiding Consumers Toward Healthful Dietary Fat Intakes

All About Caffeine: Clarifying the Controversies Surrounding Caffeine and Health CPE Program

The Lowdown on Low-Calorie Sweeteners CPE Program

A Practical Guide to Risk Communications CPE Program

Each of these modules provide 1 hour of CPE upon completion of the program. By the way, did I mention these programs are free of charge!?

In addition, throughout the year, the IFIC Foundation offers several opportunities for health professionals to earn credits by attending "live" webcasts on a variety of food, health, and nutrition topics.

In fact, here is information for our next "live" webcast event offering CPE credit:

Please join the International Food Information Council (IFIC) for a webinar for food and health professionals to present the findings of our 2012 "Consumer Perceptions of Food Technology & Sustainability" Survey on Thursday, May 10, 2012 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT.

Participation in the LIVE webinar will qualify for one CDR Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for Registered Dietitians (RD) and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTR). Space is limited, so please register early.
