Harvard Honoring the Sherpa!

Today I was asked to be on the faculty of Harvard's famous Continuing Medical Education conference in the Genetic Basis of Adult Disease. I am extremely honored to be a part of this distinguished faculty. This year's conference will be held October 12-14th. The last conference topics and website are still up and I am certain the new one will be shortly. I highly recommend it for all physicians looking to become Sherpas or at least to stay up with the breakneck pace of genetic discovery in medicine. Several topics include:

  • Genetic Causes of Heart Failure
  • Genetics of Lipid Disorders
  • Genetics of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Genetics of Common Psychiatric Diagnoses
  • Genetics, Lung Cancer and Treatment Responses
  • Genetics of Gastro-Intestinal Diseases
  • Barriers to the collection and use of the Family Health History in Primary Care

So who should attend this great conference?

Internal Medicine Docs
Family Physicians
Genetic Counselors
Registered Nurses
Nurse Practitioners
Physician Assistants

I was at the conference last year and am excited to be behind the podium this year. Please mark your calendars!!!!
