The Purple Passion

Are you tired of being “talked at” by a lecturer? Try interactive learning. RDH Magazine Columnist Eileen Morrissey presents forums on various dental hygiene issues. Learning is study club style, small group, informative, yet informal. Earn 2-6 CEUs. An environment is created where hygienists learn from each other. Forums are sponsor-free, independent!

The objective is to gain new insights on topics. An environment is created where hygienists hear and learn from each other.

***If you would like to host a Purple Passion Forum Event in your home for a minimum of 8 RDHs, please contact me at for details. Your tuition will be waived!
