Program sponsors who receive MEAC approval for continuing education programs then award continuing education units (CEU’s) or contact hours to participants. Following is a listing of all current Distance Continuing Education opportunities that have been approved by MEAC.

No More Kegels
This course was developed in response to skyrocketing rates of occurrence of Pelvic Floor Disorder, in an effort to bring the education and treatment of PFD in line with the science, which currently it is not, which is the reason the problem continues to get worse. Most literature on PFD gives some if not most of the blame for PFD on pregnancy and childbirth, despite the data that shows PFD rates to be equal among women who have never had children.
