Program Purpose / Objectives
Objectives:

This series of lectures is designed to educate and update the primary care physician on current hot topics relevant to infectious disease in their office practice.

Upon completion, participants should be able to diagnose, treat and perhaps prevent many of the infections commonly seen.

Topics include:
  • Coverage of the newer antibiotics and antivirals used in the US
  • Controversies in pediatric ID (treatment of fever in infants, steroids in meningitis, use of probiotics)
  • Information of identification and treatment of specific pathogens (summertime rashes, MRSA, Lyme, Latent Tuberculosis, influenza) commonly seen such in clinical practice.
The two case reports are taken from classic presentations of illnesses seen in an office practice with discussion of the literature and treatment.

With more of our families traveling we will also discuss published guidelines (sinusitis, OM) travel advice including both antibiotics and vaccines indicated for the different regions of the world.

There will be time for questions related to these topics as well as open discussion regarding pathogens of interest to the attendees. This seminar will be relevant to family practitioners, pediatricians, infectious disease specialists, as well as other health professionals who manage pediatric patients.

Ports of Call
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (Embark and Debark) - There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or adventure to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.
Costa Maya, Mexico - Exploring the dense tropical vegetation and wide sandy bays of the Costa Maya, it's easy to imagine the days when sacrifice and slavery, rite and ritual were rampant in the Mayan culture. Even today, the countless ruins of temple walls, stairs and secret pathways exude magic and mystery. And when your archaeology lesson is complete, glorious stretches of coral sand may inspire you to build your own empire-of sand castles, of course!
Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
Nassau, Bahamas - The captivating capital of the 700 Bahamian islands. Attractions include forts to explore, coral reefs to snorkel and a fascinating straw market to shop
