A course held between the first and 14th days, inclusively, will appear in the preceding month's issue. The listing cannot be published unless it contains the following information: title, location, date(s), sponsor(s), and contact address. Optional information includes CME category 1 hours of instruction, registration fee, and guest speakers. Listings should be typed double-spaced with 2-inch left and right margins.
