“Thank you for putting together CEUs that focus on Hospice care. My 95-year-old Mother passed away on May 4, 2023. She has been living in a level 5 care center for the past 5 years, in CT. The information from the courses I completed was very helpful as I navigated this journey with my family. As a 5E-trained Acupuncturist, I really appreciated the point protocols..”​
