We are now planning for our 2021 Freeport Education Day. Due to the uncertainty of COVID restrictions and the fact that widespread vaccination is unlikely to be available prior to the conference, we are planning a virtual education day, on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
Most of our planned speakers for 2020 have graciously agreed to present at our 2021 conference.
Dr. Hemant Shah will return for a 2nd year as our morning keynote speaker. He will speak on the Diagnosis and Management of Fatty Liver Disease.
The Dr. Don Geiger keynote speaker in the afternoon will be our own Dr. Fred Mather, giving us Lessons Learned on LTC, reflecting on the recent inquiries into safety in LTC. Dr. Mather is the president of the Ontario LTC Clinicians.
Other topics will include: An Update on COPD; Aging and Sexuality, Appropriate Prescribing in the Elderly; Management of CHF in the context of Chronic Renal Failure; the Rapid Access Clinic–Low Back Pain; and A Stepwise Approach to Diabetes Management. Presentations will be of interest to physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
Registration will open in mid-January.
Please join us on May 5, 2021 for a locally organized, high quality, Geriatric Education Day.
