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 some of the newer antibiotics and antivirals used in the US in 2014, as well as specific pathogens 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 travel advice including both antibiotics and vaccines indicated for the different regions of the world. Lastly we will discuss MRSA, a pathogen hitting our communities and children in ever increasing numbers.  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.

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.
