Target Audience: Physicians and allied health care professionals specializing in rheumatology. Accreditation: AMA: The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 4.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. AAPA: Physician assistants may receive a maximum of 4.25 hours of Category 1 credit for completing this program. Nurses: For the purpose of relicensure, the California Board of Registered Nursing accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ (report up to 4.25 hours of credit and list “CME Category 1” as the provider number). Description: The Rheumatology landscape is ever-evolving. In recent decades there have been significant and rapid advances in the understanding of the immunopathogenesis of many rheumatic diseases. This has led to improvements in the diagnosis and stratification of patients, as well as in more efficient treatments and overall management of many rheumatic diseases. In order to transform this knowledge into better outcomes for patients, rheumatologists require ongoing education and insight regarding optimal patient assessment as well as the benefits and risks of large and expanding number of potential therapeutic agents and treatment strategies. The goal of this activity is to provide rheumatologists with current, evidence-based data that can be translated into clinical practice in order to maximize therapeutic goals and optimize healthcare outcomes for patients with various rheumatic diseases. This ½ day, comprehensive CME activity will utilize evidence-based data around the management of rheumatic diseases. Didactic teaching, along with interactive discussions and case-based discussion will enhance the relevancy providing rheumatologists with the ability to apply the latest data into clinical practice. Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity participants should be able to: • Examine the immunopathogenesis underlying various rheumatologic, systemic inﬂammatory, autoimmune disorders • Recognize the importance of early and aggressive management of rheumatologic diseases in order to optimize longer term outcomes • Discuss the mechanisms of action of various drugs and immunomodulatory agents commonly used in rheumatology and be aware of their place in current guidelines • Explain the possible adverse events, common and uncommon, that may be associated with the use of various immunomodulatory agents; describe how to stratify and monitor patients to optimize safety • Discuss the importance of shared decision making and effective clinician-patient communications • Recognize major issues and advances related to the management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, psoriatic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, gout, pseudogout, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and other common rheumatologic disorders

Course Overview: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common and widely misunderstood syndrome that results from a surprisingly large number of disease processes. It can occur at any age and the risk of developing PH increases with age and other medical conditions. Great strides have been made in the past 15 years in diagnosing and treating pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) so that the natural history of PAH is rapidly changing. On the other hand, the more common clinical variant, pulmonary venous hypertension (PVH) has been largely unaffected by medical therapy. In addition, there is often a divide between those whose treat PAH and those clinicians whose patients have PVH and are frustrated by the lack of effective therapy. This conference will be unique in that it will cover all forms of pulmonary hypertension. Expert faculty will discuss the epidemiology of PH, how PH is diagnosed, and the poor outcomes associated with PH when left untreated. Clinicians will leave with a better understanding of the difference between PAH and PVH and why the difference matters. Therapies for PAH and PVH will also be discussed with reference to current clinical guidelines. Participants will return to their practice equipped with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient outcomes. Educational Objectives: After attending this live activity, participants should be able to: • Describe the epidemiology and pathophysiology of pulmonary hypertension. • Determine who is at risk for pulmonary hypertension and effectively diagnose patients. • Recognize the difference between PAH and PVH and how this translates into therapy. • Outline the current approach to pulmonary hypertension treatment in the presence of related or underlying diseases. • Evaluate current pharmacologic and medical management strategies for patients with pulmonary hypertension. • Incorporate novel therapies into patient care for improved outcomes. • Identify when to refer patients for specialty treatment.

They will provide an easily understandable delineation of the neural, physiological and psychological processes supporting mindfulness-based pain relief and health promotion. They will delve into research demonstrating how mindfulness changes the brain, is different from placebo and other meditative practices, and involved processes that are unique and distinct from other mind-body approaches. There will also be a section focused on the role of compassion meditation and the corresponding health benefits. We will also teach participants how to practice a spectrum of mindfulness techniques, including breath awareness, vipassana, eating and walking mindfulness, and mindfulness-based compassion. Importantly, these techniques are the same as the ones validated in Dr. Zeidan’s research. Further, participants will learn how to share mindfulness with their patients, clients, and loved ones. Objectives: At the completion of this workshop, the participants should be able to: • Demonstrate how to practice a wide spectrum of mindfulness meditation techniques and tools • Gain a deep understanding behind the neuroscience of meditation presented in a user friendly fashion • Apply mind/body approaches to a range of disorders and a condition based on Fadel and other’s own research. • Implement mindfulness in clinical settings • Identify the psychological and physiological mechanisms involved in mindfulness • Describe the best mindfulness-approach for different patient populations

2020 Cancer Immunology and the Tumor Microenvironment Symposium is organized by SBP's NCI-Designated Cancer Center and will be held on Mar 18, 2020 at Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine, La Jolla, California, United States of America. Course Description: Research in this program aims to understand the molecular basis of how cells interact with each other and with the molecules in their environment, and how these processes promote tumor growth and metastasis. We also explore how the immune system is altered to promote tumor growth, and how tumor cells stimulate the production of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) to gain access to nutrients and metastasize. This is the starting point for the identification of strategies to modify the tumor microenvironment to inhibit tumor growth and metastasis. Additional details will be posted as soon as the information is available.
