Continuing Education Units for Health Professionals (CEUs)
Listed below is information for those interested in attending the conference for professional education credit. Please note we have requested approval for LAc, RN and RD are covered. Nutritionists need only the $5 Certificate of Attendance. If your profession is not listed, please check with your professional board to see if they will accept the Certificate of Attendance. The list will be updated as approvals are received. Please contact Kathy Kramer, Director of Continuing Education, for the Weston A. Price Foundation, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
The fees for CEUs is $25 per day (5 credits each day) or $65 for all three days (15 credits). Many conferences do not charge extra because the fees are built into the registration fees. In an effort to keep our registration fees low, we do not charge everyone but charge the individuals using this service.
• Registered Dietitians (RD) and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTR): Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR): Approved for CPE Level 1. 15 credit hours. See: http://www.cdrnet.org/applications/cpe/viewprogdetails.cfm?ProgramID=101025&CFID=4922962&CFToken=38601648

• Acupuncture: APPROVED by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM): 15 PDA points for full conference (PDA points are accepted by all states except California)
NOTE regarding Nutritionists:

National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) for Category II CEUs, CHEK Institute, Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) and American College of Nutrition.

NOTE regarding Chiropractors
• Chiropractors (DCs): Sought approval from the Texas Chiropractic College. But the paperwork required is so involved that it is unreasonable for us to do it. It would be a burden on our speakers. Next year we will check with another school. You might see if your state board will accept a Certificate of Attendance.
