16th International B.E.S.T. (Bariatric Endoscopic Surgical Trends) is organized by Cine-Med Inc. and will be held from Dec 09 - 10, 2019 at The Roosevelt Hotel, New york city, New York, United States of America. Who Should Attend: Physicians, nurses, trainees and allied health clinicians involved in the treatment of obesity with surgery. Accreditation Physicians: Ciné-Med designates this live activity for a maximum of 13.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Nurses: This activity provides 13.75 contact hours for nurses. Activity Goal: This activity is designed to address the following core and team competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning, and Interprofessional Collaboration. Overview: This year's B.E.S.T. conference will focus on the quest for a personalized approach in bariatric and metabolic surgery. From indications to outcomes, we will be defining the role for primary, revisional procedures, and emerging technologies. The specialized division of bariatric surgery is increasingly challenging, both in the area of expertise and in managing outcomes and complications. Additionally, obesity as a chronic disease provides many areas of both advancement and discussion. Over the course of the two-day conference, the program will include more than 10 live-surgery transmissions from hospitals across the region as well as from international colleagues around the world. The procedures will be performed in full accordance with current guidelines for live surgery. In addition, lectures, debates with audience polling, a "Shark Tank" presentation of current innovations, and conclusive wrap-ups after each session will serve to orient conference participants towards possible algorithms for different revisional procedures. Objectives: By attending this activity, participants will be able to: • Define an algorithm for the management of GERD after sleeve gastrectomy and the preoperative evaluation for patients with potential risk for post-op GERD • Identify the appropriate applications of robotic, computer-assisted technology in bariatric surgery • Define and clarify the current state of knowledge regarding single anastomosis procedures • Review and determine the anatomy and physiology of the small bowel and its implications regarding bariatric surgery • Explain how to evaluate patients with recidivism, and identify select steps for revisional surgery indications and strategies • Identify strategies for the high-risk patient • Identify appropriate indicators for bariatric endoscopic interventions Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

4th Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer: Focus on Practice-Changing Application
Dec 14, 2019 | New York, New York
4th Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer: Focus on Practice-Changing Application is organized by Physicians' Education Resource, LLC (PER) and will be held on Dec 14, 2019 at InterContinental New York Times Square, New York, United States of America. Target Audience: This educational program is directed toward oncologists, nurses, and pharmacists. Participants will be primarily those whose practice requires mastery and a critical understanding of the fundamental principles, pivotal published studies, and emerging information on immunotherapies and their evolving roles in the treatment of patients with cancer. Overview: The recent development of immunotherapies to treat cancer has transformed the way that clinicians think about managing their patients with many forms of malignancies. The speed at which basic science and clinical trial information continue to emerge in this area, however, creates practice and/or educational gaps for busy clinicians who strive to maintain state-of-the art care for their patients with cancer. This field is one of the most clinically relevant and exciting areas of novel drug development in oncology. This exciting and fast-paced congress will provide a multi-module, curriculum-based program that focuses exclusively on immunotherapies and their application to the management of cancer. This intensive, 1-day interactive program will provide a comprehensive review of the key data sets that are most relevant to the application of these novel strategies for the clinician who manages some of the most difficult-to-treat forms of cancer. The program will focus on the practical application of recent clinical trial results that have shaped current and evolving clinical management, evolving biomarker information, the latest basic science findings, and the most highly anticipated clinical trials in the field. Topics of particular interest will be optimal timing of checkpoint inhibitors, identification of patients with cell surface expression of a target antigen who would be good candidates for CAR T-cell treatment, using combination immunotherapies in patients with driver mutations (eg, EGFR/ALK), and the use of combination therapies targeting the IDO pathway in patients with advanced melanoma. Learning Objectives: Upon successful completion of this educational activity, you should be better prepared to: • Explain current and evolving mechanistic approaches concerning how the immune system can be targeted in the treatment of cancer • Evaluate recent clinical trial findings on immuno-oncology strategies, and how they can be practically applied to the management of cancer in multiple lines of care • Discuss emerging methods to personalize care via the use of biomarkers and other methods to individualize the use of immuno-oncology strategies • Describe how common and uncommon adverse events, associated with the use of immuno-oncology strategies, can be proactively mitigated and managed • Detail important remaining clinical questions in the field, and highly anticipated ongoing clinical trials, that are evaluating emerging immuno-oncology strategies
