Current Topics in Infectious Diseases

Saturday, November 2, 2019
NYU Langone Health
550 First Avenue, Alumni Hall, New York, NY 10016

The field of infectious diseases has become increasingly visible to physicians and laymen alike owing to the emergence and re-emergence of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, pandemic influenza and infections caused by “superbugs” such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. New information evolves rapidly, making it difficult for the practicing physician to remain abreast of the latest developments. This course will provide the latest, practical, evidence-based information and expert opinion on the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of important infectious diseases likely to be encountered by the practicing physician. Lectures, case-based discussion and question and answer sessions will be delivered by nationally and internationally recognized leaders in infectious diseases.

This course is intended for Primary care physicians, general medicine internists, family practitioners, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other allied health professionals.

Cancer Survivorship: Fundamentals for Primary Care

Friday, November 15, 2019
Zuckerman Research Center, New York, NY

More and more, cancer survivors are being cared for by non-oncology providers. Understanding potential toxicities related to chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy and hormone therapy is essential in providing comprehensive care for all stages of survivorship. During this one-day symposium on caring for cancer survivors in the primary care setting, attendees will hear speakers from cardiology, endocrinology, integrative medicine, behavioral health, nursing, medicine, and clinical genetics. The symposium will address the entire spectrum of cancer survivorship care: monitoring and management of late- and long-term effects ranging from cardiotoxicity to cognitive changes, screening for other malignancies, and promotion of healthy lifestyles.

This course is intended for primary care providers who are interested in learning more about how to care for cancer survivors.
