A major challenge we face today as primary care clinicians is staying current with the rapid advances in prevention. Prevention is a major component of effective primary care practice and one of the unique strengths that we must possess. Most existing CME courses focus on prevention in one or several limited spheres. In this course, we will focus on screening and prevention and teach you innovative and novel strategies across multiple disciplines. Sessions include prevention of cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases, obesity, diabetes, timely updates on COVID-19 prevention, treatment and management; risk management issues in primary care; and a number of inspiring keynotes. All sessions will provide you with practical information that you can use now to provide exceptional patient care.
