Haymarket Media Inc., today announced the acquisition of Plantation, FL-based National Association for Continuing Education (NACE), specialists in accredited Continuing Education programs for medical and mental health professionals. NACE joins two other Haymarket divisions—Haymarket Medical Education (HME) and global medical education website myCME—to expand Haymarket’s Continuing Education (CE) offerings.
Since 2001, NACE has built a respected reputation for delivering live CE content through recognized regional education conferences to nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians, in over 40 cities annually.
“With their live meeting expertise, NACE will reinforce our position as a leading full-service provider of medical education,” said Lee Maniscalco, CEO of Haymarket Media, Inc. “As in-person CE activities remain an integral, and required, part of how clinicians learn, the acquisition of NACE will allow Haymarket to build upon the strengths of this educational format in unprecedented ways.”
“Our collaborations over the years with Haymarket have offered significant value to our HCP attendees and program sponsors,” said Harvey C. Parker, PhD, CHCP, President and Chief Executive Officer of NACE. “NACE’s live meeting experience is a great enhancement to the work already being done at Haymarket; we are excited to be joining forces during this period of growth and expansion.”
While NACE will be part of the Haymarket CE suite of services, it will continue to function autonomously as a CE provider under its existing governance structure for accredited CE programs, in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Accreditation Criteria and the Standards for Commercial Support.
The NACE acquisition also grows Haymarket’s reach in continuing education, by adding 53,000 learners to Haymarket’s audience of 2.2 million healthcare professionals and deepening its best-in-class reputation with certified healthcare education covering the spectrum of interprofessional healthcare audiences.
The addition of NACE builds on Haymarket’s robust investment in multi-channel, multi-platform delivery of top-quality educational content, news, and information to clinicians as well as Haymarket’s data-driven approach to assessing the impact of continuing education initiatives.
NACE will retain its name and continue operations from its Plantation, FL offices. HME and myCME are based in Paramus, NJ.
