The second big event is a Spring Seminar featuring cutting edge speakers on topics applicable for nutrition professionals. The event is a four hour event on a Saturday where Registered Dietitians and other health professionals can earn 4 or more CPEUs from participating in the workshop. This event is typically held in February or March.
