The Department of Health Services Birth to 3 Program is in the process of changing from a WisLine format to a more interactive Adobe Connect presentation. There will be approximately two months of transitioning from WisLine conference calls to Adobe Connect meetings. Once Adobe Connect has fully integrated audio services, WisLines will not be used. An announcement will be shared with participants regarding the date when WisLines stop and Adobe Connect will be the sole format for training.
