Sponsors – Fall 2016

Wise minds throughout history have said that it takes one year to get something new off the ground and two years to work out the most significant kinks. In Year 3, though, those brilliant men and women throughout history have determined that innovative experiences truly take hold and begin marking their legacy.

It just so happens (imagine the coincidence) that this is Year 3 of CMEpalooza, a one-of-a-kind, semi-annual bonanza that brings together the best of the continuing medical education (CME) community for a full day of high-quality, FREE online education.

And we’re here again this year to let our platform work for our potential sponsors.

Since opening up sponsorship opportunities in the fall of 2014, more than 35 companies and organizations have aligned themselves with CMEpalooza, showing faith in the ability of our platform to get their names out and promote their businesses through regular exposure via our website and social media channels.
