Learning Institute Schedule and Descriptions

The Learning Institutes (LI) are half or full-day courses that afford learners the chance to participate in a more intense and interactive educational experience. Continuing education credits are available for LIs. The number of credits for each LI is listed below.

Learning Institutes are not included in the Annual Meeting registration fee but can be purchased through the Annual Meeting registration process. Fees for each LI are listed below. If an individual must cancel, a cancellation fee will be deducted for each LI.

APHA reserves the right to cancel any LI due to low enrollment. In case of a cancellation, registrants will be notified immediately and given the opportunity to choose an alternate LI or to be fully refunded.

Please contact Evangeline Savage at (202)-777-2523 if you have any questions regarding LIs.
