Two continuing medical education programs have been on the calendar for physicians recently. Last weekend, Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM) offered a program entitled “Current Therapies for Neurological Presentations” at Château Élan Winery & Resort in Braselton, Georgia. This weekend, the Georgia Osteopathic Medical Association (GOMA) presents its “Fall Conference & Scientific Exhibition” at the Georgia Campus in Suwanee.
Last weekend’s conference updated physicians on the diagnosis and treatment of specific neurological diseases, including timing and indicators for the management of Parkinson’s disease using deep brain stimulation. The program also included discussions about the differences between autism spectrum disorder and Rett syndrome. In addition, PCOM School of Pharmacy Assistant Professor Sara (Mandy) Reece, PharmD, who serves on the Georgia Commission on Medical Cannabis, spoke about the use of medical marijuana as approved by the state of Georgia.
Reece will present on the same topic this Friday during the GOMA conference, which also features discussions on liver cancer, narcolepsy, chronic pain management, seizure disorders, complementary medicine and cancer, and robotic hip and knee replacement, among many other topics.
There’s a lot of learning going on at GA-PCOM – and not only with our students!
