Point of Care Group Webinars  |  2019


Whitehat produces webinars for the hospital laboratory and point of care community across the US. These educational sessions present a wide range of educational and practical topics chosen by the groups themselves. The educational segments are delivered by respected experts, and offer one P.A.C.E.® Continuing Education contact hour to attendees for 6 months after the live event.


These free sessions are funded by our supportive family of vendors and give our affiliated point of care groups the opportunity to communicate, discuss, and share knowledge relating to point of care on a regular basis. Below is the webinar schedule for all of 2019. You may register for any sessions that interest you, regardless of your POC group affiliation. Note: The schedule is still in process at this time, and will continue to be updated for several more weeks. Be sure to check back often as new sessions are posted and opened for registration.
