Dermatology and Gastroenterology Course is organized by Continuing Education, Inc and will be held from May 26 - Jun 03, 2019 at Celebrity Reflection, Dublin, Leinster, Ireland. Target Audience: Physicians, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners. Accreditation: 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ 14.0 Contact Hours 2½ Hours of Pharmacology for NPs Program Purpose: The goal is to provide our fellow colleagues with an overview of the most common gastrointestinal issues. The role is not only to review the underlying problems but to aid in the formation of a differential diagnosis. Participants will be provided with the latest guidelines which will allow them to address the complex issues. One of the biggest initiatives is to increase colon cancer screening. Participants will have the tools to answer their patient's questions, concerns and will be able to encourage patients to undergo screening tests from FIT, to COLOGUARD to screening colonoscopies. Additional goals include providing knowledge in differentiating between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten sensitivity. Providers will be able to explain the difference and direct the patients for necessary testing. In understanding elevated liver enzymes, physicians will be able to order additional blood work and narrow the diagnosis prior to the referral. When addressing a topic of fatty liver, a multidisciplinary approach is introduced which will explain how liver findings are part of the metabolic syndrome and therefore close monitoring may involve the participation of multiple teams. Topics: • Recognizing Benign and Malignant Lesions of The Skin • Skin Disease Pearls for Primary Practice • Selected Topics in Acne and Rosacea • Infections and Infestations of the Skin • Psoriasis Update - Treatment and Co-morbidities • Gerd And Safety Of Ppi Medications • How To Proceed When You See Elevated Liver Enzymes? • What's In A Name?

4th International Conference on ImmunoMetabolism: Molecular and Cellular Immunology of Metabolism is organized by Aegean Conferences and will be held from May 28 - Jun 02, 2019 at Sheraton Rhodes Resort, Rhodes, South Aegean, Greece. Obesity and its co-morbidities, including atherosclerosis, insulin resistance and diabetes, are a world-wide epidemic. Inflammation in metabolic tissues has emerged as a universal feature of these chronic metabolic disorders. While initial work highlighted the contribution of macrophages to tissue inflammation and insulin resistance, recent studies demonstrate that adaptive and other innate immune cells also participate in obesity-induced pathogenesis of these conditions. However, the molecular and cellular pathways by which the immune system controls tissue and systemic metabolism remain poorly understood. Furthermore, given the different spheres of science that immunologists and experts in metabolism travel in, there has been limited cross-talk between these two communities, which is needed to accelerate future discoveries in this emerging field. Thus, the goal of launching this new Aegean Conference, which we have coined ImmunoMetabolism, is to get these two communities to meet in a conference devoted solely to this topic, thereby fostering a deeper connection and fruitful collaborations amongst the experts in these disparate fields. The meeting will bring together investigators who are at the forefront of immunology or metabolism, and provide opportunities for junior scientists to present posters and discuss ideas with leaders in the developing field of Immunometabolism. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Focus: The incidence of oncologic diseases has risen in recent years. This is associated with an increase in the number of patients with cancer that can be found in intensive care units. Critically ill oncologic patients have several therapeutic challenges due to their nutritional and immunologic baseline, risk of infectious diseases, and cancer-treatment toxicities. For this reason, it is essential to reduce the knowledge gaps, and provide critical care staff with updated educational resources to improve patient outcomes. This symposium addresses the complex scenarios that could be found in the intensive care units and allow the attendees to have direct contact and learn from oncologic critical care experts. Educational Objectives After attending this conference,participants should be able to: • Identify and address existing knowledge gaps in oncologic critical care (Knowledge); • Better understand available resources to improve clinical management of critically ill cancer patients (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes); • Identify core research interest areas to collaborate (Knowledge, Competence); • Improve bedside technical skills from workshop seminar (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes). Educational Methods • Lecture/Didactic • Case Study • Skills Based Training • Panel Discussion • Question and Answer Sessions • Poster Session • Interactive groups/breakouts • Pre-/Post-test • Simulation • Hands on Worksho Evaluation A course evaluation form will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the value of the program content to their practice decisions, performance improvement activities, or possible impact on patient health status. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment on any perceived commercial bias in the presentations as well as to identify future educational topics. ○ Critical Care in Pediatric Cancer Patients - June 1, 2019 Venue: The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Onstead Auditorium, Mitchell Building (BSRB), Floor 3, 6767 Bertner Avenue, Houston, TX 77030, USA.
