Allergists, pulmonologists and general practitioners can learn the approaches and methods used to diagnose and treat allergic, respiratory and immune diseases at the 34th Annual Pulmonary & Allergy Update conference hosted February 1-4 2012, by National Jewish Health. The program, co-chaired by National Jewish professors Harold Nelson, MD, Erwin Gelfand, MD, and Richard Martin, MD, offers an opportunity to interact with the world's leading specialists.
"For three decades this conference has assisted medical professionals in treating their patients who suffer from chronic diseases," said Dr. Nelson. "Year-after-year these four days provide tremendous opportunity to learn from some of the best teachers in the nation."
The four-day conference features lectures and case-based workshops with pulmonary, allergy/immunology focuses. Pulmonary topics include lung disease in military veterans, diagnosis and treatment of asthma, mold exposure in respiratory disease and treatment updates in COPD. The allergy/immunology topics cover myths involved in atopic dermatitis, vaccinations, diagnosis and management of bronchiectasis, and nasal allergies.
All participants will observe presentations and participate in case-study discussions with National Jewish Health Faculty. Attendees can earn 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM or 15 CE nursing contact hours. National Jewish Health is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians, and is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the California Board of Registered Nursing.
