What are PD ExpertBriefings?

Each PD ExpertBriefing is presented as a webinar (web-based seminar), in which participants can watch the slideshow presentation online and hear an audio presentation either through their computer's speakers or calling a toll-free number.  For more information about how to join these upcoming events, see our PD ExpertBriefing FAQ.
