2012 Webinar Series

A benefit of HFES membership is a monthly Webinar series. HFES Webinars aim to provide continuing education to members on a variety of topics and domains, with the convenience of virtual participation. Webinar presenters are selected from among past HFES award winners, recent authors in HFES publications, high-profile members, and those conducting research or practice in key topical areas. Members do not have to pay an additional charge to participate.

The following is a schedule of Webinars being provided for HFES members.

If you are an HFES member, all webinar recordings and handouts will be available at within 5 business days of the presentation. If you are not an HFES member and you register for a webinar, you will be e-mailed a copy of the webinar recording and handouts also within 5 business days.
