RE: information

From:"Jasper, Thomas"

Dear Steve,

An easy way for staff to get CEUs is through the TELECONFERENCE NETWORK OF
TEXAS. This is from the Univ. of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
Approximately once a month they present a teleconference on various
histology topics(IHC included). They last 1 hour and are presented at 12
noon CST. We aren't able to always all attend, however generally some people
can and it's a good resource. The phone # is 1-800-982-8868. If you call
they will give you all the details about participation. Another way to get
some CEUs is through convention attendance. Our national society is great
and although I'm not familiar with the Illinois society if they are like
most others I'm sure they're great too. You could probably contact someone
through this medium for more information. Good luck!

T. Jasper
