One of the best ways for Michigan physicians to learn the latest in clinical sciences and implement this knowledge into their everyday practice while earning up to 28.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™, is to attend MSMS Foundation's 154th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). ASM will be held Tuesday through Saturday, October 22-26, at the Sheraton Detroit Novi.

"The Annual Scientific Meeting continues to evolve every year," said David T. Walsworth, MD, an Ingham County primary care physician and 2019 ASM Planning Committee Chair. "This year we will offer several courses on Pain and Symptom Management, as well as offer two FREE plenary sessions."

Top experts will present courses, such as "How Our Comprehensive Wellness Program Enhances Joy in Medicine", "Attending to Pain and Suffering: Empowering Patients and Ourselves with Compassion and Wisdom", "Facing the New Era of Cancer Care", "Responding to Substance Use Disorders in Primary Care", "Are We Getting it Wrong? Discerning Between Peripheral and Centralized Pain Conditions", and many more.

In addition to these topics, participants also will be able to explore new developments in infectious diseases, women's health, current issues in allergy and asthma, diabetes, and more.
