In case you were wondering...

Why "Health Artes"?

Our goal is to connect you with continuing education instructors and classes that think and teach material that is compatible with reality, subject to scientific debate/testing, ethical, rationally adaptive to changing evidence, related to therapy, and which contributes to the development of professional art.

Our values include advocation and recognition of unaffiliated sources of education that are compatible with ARTES principle values. We believe in facilitation of CE credit for independent study via recognized sources of quality material.
