CDC and seven other national organizations are collaborating with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), the Emory University School of Medicine, and the Emory Vaccine Center to sponsor a Clinical Vaccinology Course to be held March 4-6, 2011, in Chicago, Illinois. Through lectures and interactive case presentations, the course will focus on new developments and concerns related to the use of vaccines in pediatric, adolescent, and adult populations. Leading infectious disease experts, including pediatricians, internists, and family physicians, will present the latest information on newly available vaccines and vaccines in development, as well as established vaccines whose continued administration is essential to disease prevention efforts.
This course is designed specifically for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, vaccine program administrators, and other health professionals involved with or interested in the clinical use of vaccines. It also will be of interest to health-care professionals involved in the prevention and control of infectious diseases, such as federal, state, and local public health officials. Course participants should have a knowledge of or interest in vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases.
Continuing education credits will be offered.
