Once the topic is deemed appropriate, the Professional Development Committee (PDC) reviews the content, the learning objectives and the credibility of the presenters. Changes are being made accordingly to ensure the highest quality. The PDC is made of 13 expert volunteers, including the CRA, CRC and PI experts that review content and moderate live events.
