4th Annual Symposium On Academic Interventional Radiology
Friday, September 29, 2017 5:30 PM - Sunday, October 1, 2017 2:00 PM Marriott Marquis, Washington, DC

Specialties: Interventional Radiology, Oncology, Vascular, Transplant, Gynecology, Urology

FRIDAY, SEPT 29, 2017: 5:30PM-9:00PM | SATURDAY, SEPT 30, 2017: 7:00AM-9:00PM

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2017 - 7:00AM-2:00PM

Interventional radiology is an approach to care for patients who can benefit from minimally invasive image-guided therapies. Advancements in interventional care afford improved patient care, quality and overall outcomes. These new therapies are best served with a multidisciplinary team approach coordinated by a health care team of different specialties involved in the treatment. The development of multidisciplinary care teams has been shown to improve the outcome of patients. The course will focus on three core competencies: medical knowledge, patient care and procedurals skills and practice-based learning and improvement. The course will include a series of case presentations, discussions and interactive learning's focused on addressing the advanced minimally invasive image-guided therapies and multidisciplinary management.                                                                                             

All sessions will be held at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC.

Update in Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders
Friday, October 20, 2017 7:00 AM - 5:15 PM The Anylan Center for Medical Research and Education, New Haven, CT

Specialties: Neurology, Neurosurgery

Movement disorders rank among the most common neurological diseases and their impact on individuals and their families is enormous. In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for Movement Disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. Unfortunately, while the mechanisms underlying movement disorders are being elucidated, there remains a dearth of available therapeutic options for patients.

This workshop endeavors to provide an update in Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders spotlighting advances in the identification of symptomology and management of the diseases. We hope to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, and leverage cross-disciplinary expertise with the ultimate goal of translating promising clinical practice and clinical research into successful treatments.

A one-day symposium designed to discuss guideline-driven recommendations, cutting edge diagnostic options and novel medical and device therapies in caring for the patient with cardiovascular disease as relevant to the internist and other providers. As cardiovascular disease remains a major cause of disability and death in the United States, it is of great value to all clinicians to be empowered with this knowledge which would be condensed in the form of many simple lectures, debates, Q & A sessions and a round of jeopardy during the course of the day. 
Reducing Disease Risk and Extending Life: Rethinking the Role of Menopausal Hormone Therapy
Friday, October 27, 2017 7:30 AM - 1:00 PM The Anlyan Center (TAC), New Haven, CT

Specialties: Cardiovascular Disease, Family Practice, General Practice, Gynecology, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics, Psychiatry

This Symposium aims to increase knowledge about the risks of untreated estrogen deficiency and about the efficacy and safety of ET. We hope this increase in knowledge will lead more healthcare professionals to recognize and evaluate their women patients for estrogen deficiency and to consider prescribing ET or referring to a specialist who is trained and experienced in menopause healthcare.

Impact on Healthcare Professionals Knowledge and Patient Care
Although extensive information is available supporting the role of estrogens for primary care prevention of cardiovascular and other diseases in women after hysterectomy, this information is not widely known or appreciated by either healthcare professionals or women themselves. The first report of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) estrogen plus progestogen findings in 2002 led to fear of all menopause hormone therapies. The 2004 WHI estrogen only (ET) findings in women who had a hysterectomy reported major benefits and minimal adverse effects of ET, but went largely unnoticed. Despite these positive findings, use of ET after hysterectomy steeply declined from more than 90% to less than 10%. Not using ET has left millions of women with menopause symptoms untreated and at increased disease risk. More than 50,000 deaths largely due to cardiovascular disease, have been attributed to non-use of ET after hysterectomy.

2017 Update: What’s New in the Field of Multiple Sclerosis
Friday, November 3, 2017 8:00 AM - 3:45 PM New Haven Lawn Club, New Haven, CT

Specialties: Neurology

MS is the most frequent non-traumatic cause for disability among young adults in North America and Europe. Worldwide, about 2.5 million people are affected. In the United States alone, more than 400,000 individuals suffer from MS. The landscape of multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment has changed dramatically over the last decade. Because of this, patients, their families and caregivers, employers, and the entire healthcare system carry substantial clinical and economic burdens associated with the disease over of a period of many years.

This one-day meeting is designed to educate clinicians on advances in the diagnosis and management of patients with multiple sclerosis.

The New England EndocrineTumor Symposium at Yale
Saturday, November 4, 2017 6:30 AM - 4:00 PM Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, 55 Park Street Auditorium, New Haven, CT

Specialties: Endocrinology, Family Practice, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Nursing, Nephrology

There is a need for this course as there have been major advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis as well as the medical and surgical management of endocrine tumors in recent years. The advancements have raised many questions from community endocrinologists, nephrologists, surgeons and other providers about the appropriate management of endocrine tumor disease. This has been demonstrated both regionally and nationally.
7th Annual Yale Epilepsy Symposium
Friday, November 17, 2017 7:00 AM - 4:40 PM Yale West Campus Conference Center, Orange, CT

Specialties: Neurology, Neurosurgery

Epilepsy and seizures affect almost 3 million Americans of all ages. Tremendous advances have been made in epilepsy treatment over the past decade. Epilepsy may be treated with drug therapy, surgery, neurostimulation or a ketogenic diet. The wide range of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) remains the cornerstone of treatment. Even with the plethora of epilepsy therapies now available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 45% of people with epilepsy continue to experience seizures. A serious gap exists between established recommendations and the actual care patients receive. This activity will bring participants up-to-date on the new advancements in the field and increase their awareness of the new therapies available for their patients.
