Dietetic Practitioners who meet in study groups to view
the recorded webinar will need to send the (1) date of the study group and

for the webinar through the NAND PayPal account.
Dietetic Practitioners, who view the recorded webinar on
their own, will need to send the date of that viewing to Cindy Van Riper so
that the appropriate certificate can be sent out. Any participant who wishes to receive a certificate
will need to be registered* for the webinar and will need to pay for the
webinar through the NAND Pay Pal account.
*Registration can only take place when the
invitation for a webinar is first issued.
If a dietetic practitioner wants to view a recorded webinar and did
not register for it initially, he/she will need to contact Cindy Van Riper to
provide contact information (name, e-mail, phone, member status) so that an
invoice for payment can be sent.
If there are questions about how the certificates will be
provided, please contact Cindy Van Riper at email@example.com or at (402) 559-5740.
