The American Society on Aging is excited to announce we are upgrading our web seminar platform to GoToWebcast!
GoToWebcast offers a more user-friendly experience, increased video and webcam sharing opportunities, faster and easier delivery of handouts, and better connections from all devices including tablets and smart phones. In the final phase of the transition, we anticipate adding instant CEU applications upon completion of web seminars. No more waiting for your CEU delivery!
Please note that the change to GoToWebcast for ASA members-only webinars will take place on Thursday, January 12, with the webinar “The Need for Cutting Edge Partnerships in an Era of Health Transformation”.
The change to GoToWebcast for all other ASA webinars will take place on Tuesday, January 17, with the webinar “Cultural Awareness in Dementia Care.”
