Our conference offers an overview of the newest developments in women’s health including diagnosis and therapy of common problems in your patient population, and specialty topics in both Internal Medicine and OB/ GYN, according to Dr. Piziak.

Southern Medical Association (SMA) will hold its accredited CME conference, Focus on the Female Patient, July 18-21, 2016, at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort on Kiawah Island, a barrier island near Charleston, South Carolina. The 4-day conference offers interprofessional education designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives and other healthcare professionals caring for women.

The Focus on the Female Patient conference is chaired by Veronica K. Piziak, MD, PhD, FACP, Emeritus Director, Division of Endocrinology and Director of Scott & White’s Diabetes Center in Temple, Texas. This year marks the 27th year of Dr. Piziak’s leadership over this program.

“Our conference offers an overview of the newest developments in women’s health including diagnosis and therapy of common problems in your patient population, and specialty topics in both Internal Medicine and Obstetrics/Gynecology," according to Dr. Piziak. “The faculty is available during the meeting and at breaks and is happy to answer your questions about problem cases. Plus, the location is ideal for your family to spend time on a beautiful, safe beach and home to thousands of hatching sea turtles each summer.”
