About the Fully Online Distance Program

The National Maternal Nutrition Intensive Course distance program will be available from September 1-December 31, 2022.

Participants will watch presentations and complete evaluations on their own time starting on September 1 and will need to be completed by December 31, 2022, in order to receive a certificate of completion for credit.
