Progressnotes is pleased to offer continuing education opportunities in an effort to meet the educational needs of our audience of health care professionals and to address the health care challenges of South Carolina, particularly its high burden of chronic illness. Each issue of Progressnotes, with the exception of the Year in Review, will offer one CME-eligible article along with a sister telepresentation on a related subject through the South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium’s SCHOOLS program. The telepresentation is typically scheduled within a month or so of the article’s publication, recorded as enduring CME, and made available at MUSCHealth.org/ProgressnoteCME.
