When you register, you will be asked whether you would like to hear from March of Dimes regarding issues relevant to G&YP and for news alerts, progress reports and promotions to benefit the March of Dimes. You may opt out of these communications at any time. Unless you are applying for continuing professional education credit, your personally identifiable information will not be forwarded to any third parties without your permission.
Swedish Medical Center
The March of Dimes Foundation has granted Swedish Medical Center permission to use the educational modules owned by the March of Dimes Foundation and accessible on the G&YP Web site for the purpose of assessing the curriculum materials and for providing continuing educational credits to health professionals.
Continuing Professional Education
By providing your personal information for continuing education credit, you are granting us permission to forward it to the provider, Swedish Medical Center and any other accrediting organizations that require it. Your personal information will be used to generate your certificate of completion and for aggregate reporting. Information forwarded to the professional education provider or other accrediting authority will be subject to their individual privacy policies.
If you opt-in to evaluate the G&YP site we will be collecting your information in the aggregate and the pre- and post-test will be evaluated by general information only, not by personal identifiers.
