Educational Support Opportunities

​​​​​​​​Medical education plays an important role in the quality of healthcare delivered across the globe.  By providing an educational grant in support of the educational opportunities below, you are making a vital contribution to these efforts and supporting better patient outcomes.

All educational grants are managed in compliance with relevant CME accreditation criteria and industry compliance codes. In order to ensure independence of all CME accredited elements, companies providing grants may not influence the topic, speaker selection, or any other aspect of the content or presentation. No promotional, commercial, or advertising materials may be included in the following opportunities. All support will be disclosed to participants.

Viewers can access the broadcasts using PCs, tablets or smartphones live (as streamed video) or later, on-demand as a webcast.

Kenes offers two types of webcasting options*:

  • Video includes a video screen of the speaker/presenter during the session, PowerPoint slides (in sync with the speaker), and audio
  • Digital Imaging includes PowerPoint slides with audio
