The Minnesota Scapula Course is organized by University of Minnesota - Continuing Professional Development and will be held on Sep 14, 2019 at TRIA Orthopaedic Center, Bloomington, Minnesota, United States of America. Hosted in cooperation with the North American Scapula Consortium (NASCon), this conference will equip surgeons with the knowledge and surgical skills to operate on most scapula fractures they will encounter in practice. Audience: This activity is designed for orthopaedic surgeons interested in the operative indications and treatment of scapula fractures. Course Description: Scapula fractures have traditionally been thought of as rare injuries that for the most part heal fine with benign neglect. Part of the rationale for this approach is that the shoulder has the universal motion and can compensate for deformity and loss of glenohumeral motion. Current research has shown that non-operatively treated patients with significantly displaced scapula fractures may have reduced strength, motion, and an increased likelihood of malunion. Other studies have shown operative treatment to restore strength and motion postoperatively. These findings have sparked an interest in the operative treatment of scapula fractures and validated the necessity to provide the education that will make treatment of these injuries available to patients. This course will increase the width and depth of understanding of scapula fractures and their treatment, with a purpose to improve the lives of patients who have suffered and are suffering from these injuries. Featuring: • Anatomical Dissections • Cadaver Lab • Case-Based Learning Emphasis • Small Group Instruction Educational Objectives: Following completion of this activity, learners should be better able to: • Describe the history and current literature of scapula fractures. • Identify pathology and physiology of the scapula and surrounding anatomic structures. • Describe methods of measurement and operative indications of scapula fractures. • Discuss treatment options and educate patients and staff. • Explain and apply techniques for open reduction and internal fixation of scapula fractures Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Minnesota/midwest Chapter of AACE 10th Annual Meeting & Symposium is organized by American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and will be held on Sep 28, 2019 at Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington, Bloomington, Minnesota, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Description: As Endocrinologists, we manage patients with diabetes mellitus who often have high triglycerides and a high risk for cardiovascular disease despite statin therapy. Additional education in this area is imperative to help reduce the cardiovascular risk for this population. Management of chronic hypophosphatemia has been challenging. Phosphate replacement and/or calcitriol have been a mainstay of treatment. However, the efficacy and side-effect could be limitation of the use. In recent years, new therapy, burosumab which is a monoclonal antibody for FGF23 has been approved for treatment of X-link hypophosphatemia with promising results. The Endocrine Society developed a clinical practice guideline on case detection and management of primary hyperaldosteronism in 2016. It has provided extensive guidance for health care professional for screening, diagnosis and treatment of hyperaldosteronism. However, case screening, detection and confirmation can be very challenging and complicated that involved multiple steps and caveats. Moreover, outcome of treatment of hyperaldosteronism is still unknown. Identification and management of NASH require multidisciplinary approach involved various health care professionals. Endocrinologists play an essential role, usually the first point of screening. Thus, endocrinologists should be familiar with the tools to screen, diagnosis, and management of NASH and collaborate with hepatologists and other health care professionals. Moreover, long-term health outcome studies are needed to help guide care in this population further. Educational Objectives: • Review phosphate homeostasis. • Discuss an approach to evaluation of hypophosphatemia. • Describe treatment options for XLH including conventional therapy and anti-FGF23 antibody treatment. • Recognize the key signs, symptoms, and clinical circumstances that should trigger case-detection testing for primary aldosteronism. • Illustrate the diagnostic evaluations steps in a patient with possible primary aldosteronism. • Identify treatment options for the patient with primary aldosteronism. • Review the current guidelines and supporting evidence for the management of dyslipidemia. • Discuss the management of hypertriglyceridemia. Specifically, the new data involving the use of purified EPA. • Review current controversies in lipid management (Goal LDL, risk of diabetes mellitus, etc.). • Define and discuss the prevalence of NASH. • Discuss the diagnosis of NASH in 2019. • Review future therapies and liver transplantation.
