Program Purpose / Objectives
The purpose of this CME activity is to introduce new clinical paradigms, novel early detection technologies, and sophisticated laboratory tests for the prevention and management of a wide range of important medical problems. Coronary disease, cancer, sleep apnea, hypertension, dementia, osteoporosis, erectile dysfunction, and diabetes are among the diseases considered with a view towards noninvasive diagnosis and cost effective preventive care.
At the conclusion of this CME activity, participants should be able to:
  • Incorporate broad-based preventive medicine principles from “A to Z” into an office practice
  • Identify and appropriately treat blood cholesterol abnormalities to prevent CHD events in patients at intermediate to high risk for CHD
  • Apply standard of care lifestyle and pharmacologic guidelines to treat individuals with blood pressure elevations
  • Provide dementia-prevention guidelines and early treatment to patients in an office practice
  • Deliver travel medicine advice to international travelers
  • Diagnose and appropriately treat male patients with decreased bone density
  • Comfortably diagnose and treat bipolar disease in a primary care setting
  • Discuss the full spectrum of metabolic syndrome and why it is important for the primary care physician to maintain a high level of awareness
  • Appreciate how to integrate the results of coronary calcification imaging into conventional risk factor assessment
  • Review the roles and limitations of emerging imaging and physiologic tests in preventive cardiology
  • Develop a practical understanding of the unique aspects of heart disease in women
  • Consider sleep apnea in patients with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes and learn the value of recognition and treatment in younger individuals with non-classic signs
  • Develop an appreciation of the roles and limitations of all colon cancer screening options and where CT colonography fits
  • Individualize therapy based upon sophisticated lipoprotein analysis and new measures of inflammation
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Please visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link below. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
