  • The topic and content was great and rarely addressed through other methods of online learning for child life specialists.

  • I very much value these learning opportunities - it's great to be able to access some learning in the middle of the day and when education dollars are so scarce.

  • Upedia webinars are an excellent source of applicable information for child life specialists, plus offer the opportunity to earn PDUs.

  • Great first time experience with Upedia. I will definitely visit again and encourage my staff also.

  • Really enjoy the fact that we can use these webinars in furthering development as a team and as a growing profession in our hospital. Thank you!

  • With budget cuts, it is becoming increasingly difficult to travel to conferences. Webinars make the information more easily accessible. I thank you and your organization for organizing them.

  • Thanks so much for doing these webinars. So helpful for those of us who are looking for ways to continue our learning and sharpen our skills as practitioners.

  • Great topics that are easily accessible. Thank you!
