The Chapter is delighted to offer its members enduring materials modules to earn Continuing Medical Education from the convenience of your own home and pace. The following two modules were created in response to Chapter initiatives to educate Alabama pediatricians further in these child health areas:
Oral Health Risk Assessment
Faculty: Richard Simpson, DMD; Grant Allen, MD, FAAP; Nola Ernest, MD, FAAP
With a strategic goal of increasing the number of pediatricians who are billing for oral health risk assessment and fluoride varnish application, the Alabama Chapter-AAP is pleased to offer its 1st Look/Oral Health Risk Assessment Training as an on-demand, CME-approved "enduring materials" module for 1st Look certification by the Alabama Medicaid Agency and Alabama's Children's Health Insurance Program (ALL Kids).
