The series costs $75 for NRRTS registrants, $100 for friends of NRRTS (FONs), and $150 for all others. Individually, the tele-seminars cost $20 for registrants, $25 for FONs and $35 for all others.

“RTSs need clinical information,” Margolis said. “They get a lot of business education elsewhere, from The VGM Group and The Med Group.”

To ensure participants complete each session, NRRTS will require they take a short quiz and complete other measures, Margolis said.
