Established in 1984, INR (Institute for Natural Resources) is a nonprofit, scientific organization dedicated to research and education in scientific fields, including the field of health science.

INR is a provider of live and homestudy continuing-education programs for health-care professionals, offering over 600 live seminars yearly.

INR has no ties to any commercial organizations and sells no products of any kind, except educational materials. Neither INR nor any instructor has a material or other financial relationship with any health care-related business that may be mentioned in an educational program. If INR were ever to use an instructor who had a material or other financial relationship with an entity mentioned in an educational program, that relationship would be disclosed at the beginning of the program. INR takes all steps to ensure that all relevant program decisions are made free of the control of a commercial interest as defined in applicable regulatory policies, standard, and guidelines. INR does not solicit or receive gifts or grants from any source, has no connection with any religious or political entities, and is totally supported by its course tuition.
