Southern Medical Association (SMA) will mark the 25th Anniversary of its accredited CME conference entitled, Focus on the Female Patient, on July 28-31, 2014 at the East Beach Conference Center on Kiawah Island, a barrier island near Charleston, South Carolina.

In an effort to support the physician’s team, specifically nurse practitioners, in addressing women’s health issues, we have expanded the credit offerings to include nursing contact hours.

The conference offers physicians and healthcare professionals the opportunity for intensive study of women’s health including diagnosis and management guidelines, and new and controversial therapies of common diseases in women with an emphasis on practical, clinical knowledge.

The Focus on the Female Patient conference is co-chaired by Veronica K. Piziak, MD, PhD, FACP, Emeritus Director, Division of Endocrinology and Director of Scott & White’s Diabetes Center in Temple, Texas and Mark G. Martens, MD, FACOG, NCMP, Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center (Neptune) and Clinical Professor and Vice-Chair at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Stellar faculty have been invited to address the target audience of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in the study of women’s health relating to osteoporosis, women and heart disease, endo incidentlomas, diabetes management, dermatology, headaches, strokes, anxiety disorders, depression and more. There will also be sessions on healthcare reform, medical liability for e-technology, and medical errors. A track devoted to obstetricians and gynecologists will focus on obstetrics updates, placental abnormalities, office gynecology, gynecologic surgery, sexuality issues in menopause, and screening for cancer.
