Program Description & Objectives
Maintaining a current knowledge base in pediatric subspecialties is challenging in
this time of rapid expansion of new information. This one day CME event is aimed at
presenting general pediatricians and primary care practitioners with significant updates
across a broad range of subspecialties within the field of pediatrics. Expert faculty in
ophthalmology, surgery, urology, gastroenterology, dermatology, neurology, nutrition and
obesity, and otolaryngology will discuss important and clinically relevant updates in each
field. This CME activity is designed for office based primary care physicians who wish to
expand their clinical subspecialty knowledge base and improve their ability to accurately
diagnose, manage, and refer pediatric patients with specialized problems. The program
will also provide interactive question and answer sessions following each talk, allowing
attendees the opportunity to interact directly with faculty.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
Identify the gastrointestinal and extra intestinal manifestations of celiac disease
Discuss growth related issues of children with celiac disease
Review celiac disease screening and testing
Identify changes in nutritional parameters in adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery
