Asthma Webinars

The Montana Asthma Control Program has been holding two to three webinars per year since 2010 to provide continuing education opportunities for health care providers in Montana. 

We attempt to record all of our webinars, and they are posted here in our archives within a week of airing. Health care providers and other individuals interested in asthma education are invited to complete our evaluation to receive a CE certificate

Each of the webinars below has been approved for 1 CE by the Montana Board of Pharmacy and/or the Montana Board of Respiratory Care Practitioners. Since these agencies are both approved accrediting organizations for continuing education, CEs provided by them may be applicable to other professions, such as nurses. If you are not a Montana-based provider, please note these organizations are not national accrediting bodies, and they might not be accepted by professional organizations outside of Montana.
