MSMS Foundation’s Annual Scientific Meeting Goes Virtual – Earn up to 45.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

Physicians of all specialties, residents, students, nurses and other health care professionals are invited to join the Michigan State Medical Society Foundation at our 155th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) which will be held virtually for the first time this year. This  six-day conference will give attendees the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge clinical advances from local and national experts, from the safety and comfort of their homes.

“The Annual Scientific Meeting has continued to evolve through the years, 2020 is no different.  The Planning Committee has developed a curriculum that still addresses typical content areas like diabetes and cardiovascular disease but has also added more pressing clinical information on the pandemic.  In addition, many of the relicensure requirements are available as usual as well. " said David T. Walsworth, MD, an Ingham County primary care physician and 2020 ASM Planning Committee Chair.

Top experts will present courses, such as "Influenza and COVID-19", "Coping with Stress in Chaotic Times – Needed Skills for Patients and Physicians", "Human Trafficking in Michigan – What Physicians Need to Know", 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.
