What is an ISPT?
An ISPT is a dedicated time for Industry to host a session that provides information on a specific product or service of interest to NPs working in the area of gerontology. Since these sessions may be promotional and are specific to a certain product, no CNEs are available for these sessions.

The ISPT will allow you the opportunity to highlight your product or service to APNs in a relaxed atmosphere while focusing only on your product and the APNs in attendance. ISPT sessions do not compete with any other educational programming in the time period allotted.


* Seating is limited - attendees will be admitted on a first-come basis.
