Lab and X-ray Interpretation Live Webinar


Schedule a continuing education day focused on updating your skills in laboratory and X-ray interpretation! In this live webinar on July 24, 2020, APEA presents two live 3-hour lectures designed to enhance and expand your knowledge base. The morning lecture focuses on the interpretation of laboratory findings related to anemia and liver function and is presented by Amelie Hollier, DNP, FNP-BC, FAANP. The afternoon lecture focuses on the evaluation of X-rays commonly obtained for upper and lower extremity conditions and is presented by Denise Ramponi, DNP, FNP-C, ENP-BC, FAANP, FAEN.

During this webinar, you will watch live lectures by these expert presenters and have ample opportunity to ask questions directly to them. This is interactive, live learning—not a prerecorded event.
