Program Summary

Join Gregg Sherman, MD and Ashlyn Smith, PA-C online for this live virtual broadcast and stay on track to fulfill your CME requirements from the comfort of your home.

Primary care providers face complex challenges everyday in their busy practices. With rapid changes in medicine, staying informed about new developments can be equally challenging. Our goal in this CME activity is to help you hone your skills in the diagnosis and management of patients with varied conditions you are likely encountering in your practice.

Utilizing an interactive, moderator led format, this program will present discussions with national thought leaders, who as clinicians themselves, understand the challenges you face every day as a primary care provider. Our faculty will be at your disposal to provide evidence-based science, current treatment guidelines, discuss challenging cases, and provide answers for you that can ultimately lead to better health care for your patients. The presentations will include several interactive cases and discussion sessions to keep you actively learning.
