Kent Jolly and the planners of this activity have disclosed that they have no financial relationships with a commercial interest that constitute a relevant financial relationship.    

A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.


CME credit will be granted to participants who attend the conference and complete the evaluation survey.
