Program Summary

Primary care providers face complex challenges everyday in their busy practices. With rapid changes in medicine, staying informed about new developments can be equally challenging. Our goal in this CME activity is to help you hone your skills in the diagnosis and management of patients with varied conditions you are likely encountering in your practice.

We have recruited a faculty of well-known thought leaders and experienced teachers who, as clinicians themselves, understand the challenges you face every day as a primary care provider. Our faculty will be at your disposal to provide evidence-based science, current treatment guidelines, discuss challenging cases, and provide answers for you that can ultimately lead to better health care for your patients. The presentations will include several interactive cases and discussion sessions to keep you actively learning.

Please join us and become an active participant in this one-day learning community of your peers.
