Faculty

Dr Larry Kaskel is unable to participate in this cruise conference as originally announced. Dr. Wayne Peters will be speaking in his place

Wayne L. Peters, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and Assistant Clinical Professor of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine; Medical Director, HealthMark LLC and Director of Clinical Preventive Medicine, Colorado Heart and Body Imaging, Denver, Colorado.

Dr. Wayne L. Peters is a native of Rapid City, South Dakota. He received his BA from Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota (1969) and his MD from the University of Colorado (1973). He received his internal medicine training at the University of Florida, Jacksonville and was Chief of the General Internal Medicine Division at that institution from 1976 to 1982. From 1982 to 1984 he served as a Henry J. Kaiser Fellow in General Internal Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Following his fellowship, he remained at the Massachusetts General Hospital as Director of the Lipid Consultation Service and taught in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

In 1986, Dr. Peters returned to Colorado to assume his present postions as Medical Director of HealthMark LLC, a private preventive medicine clinic, and as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and Preventive Medicine and Biometrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine

Tara Dall, M.D. graduated in the first class of Diplomates of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. She was Board-Certified in Clinical Lipidology November 2005, and is one of a handful of United States physicians treating pediatric dyslipidemia. Her clinic has recently become the first fully certified lipid clinic in the United States. She attended University of Wisconsin Madison for undergraduate, medical school training and family medicine residency. Entering private practice in 2001, she formed the Cholesterol & Lifestyle Center in 2006 with the goal of aggressive detection and treatment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. She has a special interest in advanced lipid testing, women's heart disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome and pediatric obesity

Because of her passion and expertise, Dr. Dall has been asked to lecture in every venue from hospital and medical school grand rounds to community events on topics such as "Advanced Lipid Testing", "Pediatric Dyslipidemia", "Metabolic Syndrome", "Complex Dyslipidemia" and "Controlling Cholesterol: for the consumer". She also has appeared on Milwaukee's FOX news and WISN-TV and recently gave the keynote address for the American Heart Association GO RED for women annual event in Milwaukee, WI.

Ports of Call
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Plan your time here carefully, as the Eternal City's sights are endless: the Colosseum, the Forum, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican and so much more.
Genoa, Italy - A commercial port, genteel seaside resort, fine 16th century palaces in a town proud of its history and legend which was the native place of Christopher Columbus
Marseille, France - Marseille offers an unexpected view of a mosaic of buildings and National Heritage Sites from the terraces of Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica that towers above and watches over the city.

Alongside the port the towers of Saint Victor Abbey house crypts that already existed when Christianity was introduced into Provence. The columns of the Palais de la Bourse, the noble facades of the Prefecture and the fountains of the Palais Longchamp are part of the triumphant architecture from the 19th Century that is scattered throughout the city and that gave Marseille renewed splendour.

In the old quarter the houses are built on the sunny slopes ; the clock in the Accoules Bell tower, which was the old Sauveterre tower, still marks the hours of life around the Town Hall, while beyond the dome of the Vieille Charite hospice, Pierre Puget's masterpiece, stands out against the sky. The small streets of the Panier quarter lie a little further on.
Messina, Sicily - A beautiful sheltered harbor is your gateway to Taormina, a small town at heart despite its major tourist attraction: the sublime Teatro Greco, offering panoramic views of the coastline and snow-capped Mt. Etna.
Valletta, Malta - Tiny Malta abounds in forts and temples. In Valletta, wander through the ornate Grand Master's Palace of the Knights of St. John. Within the thick walls of Medina, the Silent City (no cars), visit the serene Baroque cathedral.

TravelSafe.comPlease 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 above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
