For All Interested Professionals

Our monthly Table Talks offer treatment providers a valuable opportunity to connect and discuss our professional pursuits. It’s a chance to introduce ourselves, share our challenges, and deepen our understanding of patient care. The peer support we receive is indispensable, fostering teamwork and preventing burnout while revitalizing our compassion for those we serve.

Table Talk Attendance is complimentary with your membership. Non-members can attend for a fee of $10, which includes 1 CEU. Additionally, members have access to past Table Talks through their login.

The intended audience for Table Talk presentations comprises mental health and allied medical professionals in the surrounding Valleys of the Los Angeles area, with open participation available to all interested individuals.

Please note that CE Table Talks take place either in-person on Mondays from 10:30 am to 12 noon or via Zoom on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.

The “BeFED with VFED Happy Hour” Case Consult Group, led by Amy Chalker, RDN, convenes on the final Wednesday of each month from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Come for the learning.  Stay for the new friends.
