Company Earns Approval for its First CE Course from the American Association of Veterinary State Boards
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., June 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a bionutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition that helps build lean muscle, announced today that it will be launching an online continuing education ("CE") course, titled, "Small Animal Sarcopenia: A Neglected Syndrome of Importance to Cats and Dogs" for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. The course has been approved by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards ("AAVSB") for inclusion in its Registry of Approved Continuing Education ("RACE") programs.
All states require that veterinarians and veterinary technicians complete continuing education courses on a regular basis. MYOS is pleased to offer its RACE-Approved CE Course to veterinarians and veterinary technicians on small animal muscle health free of charge. In addition to discussing the diagnosis and impact of sarcopenia on small animals, the CE course will include a comprehensive discussion on pharmaceutical and nutrition clinical trials in veterinary medicine that focuses on addressing muscle loss. After successful completion of the CE course, veterinarians and veterinary technicians will receive 1 hour of CE credit toward their AAVSB CE requirements.
"Muscle health is an area that has not received the attention that it deserves in both human and veterinary medicine. Both human and veterinary clinical studies have shown that muscle loss can have a major impact on lifespan and quality of life for humans and animals. By offering this course to veterinarians and veterinary technicians at no cost, we hope to bridge this knowledge gap. This is the first course of many we intend to offer to veterinarians. Educating clinicians on the importance of muscle health is a priority for us as we expand our animal health business," commented Joseph Mannello, CEO of MYOS.
The course will be offered on June 10 and 11, 2020 at both 12 pm (EDT) and 3 pm (EDT). There is no fee to register. The course will be delivered via the Zoom platform. Veterinarians and veterinary technicians can register for the course at the following links:
