Today, the American Lung Association announced that the annual Tri-State Pulmonary Case Conference, set for Saturday, January 23, 2021, has gone virtual to educate physicians on the latest pulmonary cases. The conference typically takes place in New Orleans, but was reimagined as an interactive virtual event to be hosted through the 6Connex Platform.
The Tri-State Pulmonary Case Conference is a continuing medical education conference that has been facilitated for more than 65 years, covering the Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi area. Featuring the latest pulmonary cases, physicians and healthcare professionals present their case and the moderator leads an incisive discussion of patient management considering both current literature and contemporary practice.
This year’s conference will include:
Case Presentations from Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana
A lecture on “Human Immune response to COVID-19” presented by Akiko Iwasaki, PhD from Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Yale School of Medicine.
A Year End Review, presented by Derek Russell, MD, and Ravi Virdi, MD, from the University of Alabama Birmingham.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Ochsner Clinic Foundation and the Tri-State Pulmonary Conference. The Ochsner Clinic Foundation is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Ochsner Clinic Foundation designates this live activity for a maximum of 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
