What to Expect


Before the live stream:
Once you are registered for the meeting, you will receive a reminder email with a direct link to access the sessions. You can also come back to this webpage and click on the “Live Sessions” tab on the left-hand navigation 10-15 minutes before each session. If you are not logged in, you will be required to log into the platform.

During the live stream:
During the program sit back and watch and learn as if you are at the 2019 AABB Annual Meeting. If you have a question, simply type it in using the live stream platform which the moderator will share with the session speakers. No one will be able to see or hear you during the live stream so its important to enter questions using the platform.

For Spanish speaking participants – Spanish captions are automatically visible in a floating panel that can be moved around the screen. The Transcript tab will include the entire caption text for the session - you will need to click the tab at the start of the session to access.

After the live stream:
After each session complete the evaluation to earn CE/CME credit. You will be able to print your certificate immediately and it will also be available in the My Transcripts section as well. Once the on-demand presentations are available (approximately 3 weeks post the event) you will be notified so you can watch sessions again or any that you missed. Please note that on-demand presentations are available at the discretion of the session speaker(s).
