CDC and four other national organizations are collaborating with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), Emory University School of Medicine, and Emory Vaccine Center to sponsor a Clinical Vaccinology Course to be held November 3-5, 2006, at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia. The course will focus on new developments and concerns related to use of vaccines in pediatric, adolescent, and adult populations. Approximately 20 experts will present symposia on adult immunization, pediatric immunization, ensuring use of vaccines, vaccine safety and supply, the evolving adolescent immunization platform, and travel and international vaccines.
This course is specifically designed for primary-care physicians, family physicians, internal medicine specialists, pediatricians, public health specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical practice nurses, infectious disease specialists, and other health-care professionals involved with clinical aspects of vaccinology. The course also will be of interest to health-care professionals involved in prevention and control of infectious diseases, including federal, state, and local public health officials. Continuing education credits will be offered for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists, and prescribed credits for family physicians.
