Nursing CEU's

AlphaNet is pleased to offer a free educational program for nurses. Three (3) CEU credits will be offered for nurses participating in this program.



The Alpha-1 Association's Oxygen Travel Fund provides oxygen and equipment for Alphas in financial need to travel to Alpha-1 educational events. To apply for support from this fund to travel to the conference, please email or call (877) 346-3212. A minimum of 30 days notice is needed to arrange travel with supplemental oxygen utilizing this program. This fund was made possible by the generosity of CSL Behring and Grifols.


If you have oxygen needs during the conference, please contact your oxygen provider and make arrangements for a local service provider in the Washington, DC area. Please be sure to have adequate supplies. Apria will provide EMERGENCY OXYGEN ONLY on site with a current prescription. Please bring your oxygen prescription to the conference.
