CME Credit Now Available for EPA’s Online Ozone Course
Surveys show that, when a health care provider tells a patient about the Air Quality Index, the patient is up to six times more likely to pay attention to the daily air quality forecast. This makes physicians key to spreading the word about air quality and its impacts on health. As such, Susan Stone and Ellen Wildermann at OAQPS, James Brown at NCEA, and Wayne Cascio at NHEERL recently reviewed and updated EPA’s online course "Ozone and Your Patients Health", which has been accepted by the American Academy of Family Physicians for up to 1.5 Continuing Medical Education (CME) prescribed credits.
