American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) Mini Symposia

All presenters at the AACPDM 75th Annual Meeting are required to include a CME Disclosure Slide at the beginning of each presentation. Please use this PowerPoint Slide as a template to ensure all required information is listed. The slide is also a task in the Speaker Harvester system.

Mini-Symposia are 75 minutes in length, providing formal in-depth instruction for continuing professional education combined with audience participation and interaction. Click HERE to access the speaker information guide.

Mini Symposia will be presented in a “mock-live” format where lectures are pre-recorded and played on a schedule as though they were being livestreamed. Presenters must be available during the “airing” of their sessions and for a live Q&A session at the conclusion of their recorded presentations. Moderators will introduce each presenter and facilitate Q&A via the chat feature of the virtual platform.
