The KOA Spring Conference will offer 30 hours of continuing education on April 22-24, 2021 in Lexington at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the Convention Center. The conference agenda provides 11 hours of Expanded Therapeutics and two hours of Pain Management CE. Expanded Therapeutics CE can count as either ETP hours or TPA hours. A box breakfast and box lunch will be served.

CE will be provided at two separate locations – the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the Lexington Convention Center. All attendees will have the same schedule daily. Speakers will present in-person CE at each location. Speakers will alternate between both locations so all attendees receive the same CE courses each day. Prior to the conference, attendees will receive their assigned CE location and detailed CE agenda. The Hyatt Hotel and Convention Center are located beside each other. There is direct parking across from both locations on High Street.

There is a block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for $195 a night. Click here to make a reservation at the Hyatt Regency Hotel or by calling 800-233-1234 and ask for G-KOTM room block.
