Our next Freeport Education Day, Geriatric Care in the 2020s,has been postponed due to the current COVID-19 crisis. We hope to have the same agenda for our conference, which will be at Bingemans Conference Centre, on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
In this time of crisis, let us all pull together. Obey public health directives to keep everyone safe. A big thank you to all health care workers and everyone else who is working to care for the sick and to keep everyone else fed and healthy.
At this point we are planning to have the same speakers, next year:
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 from the LTC Inquiry.
Other topics will include: An Update on COPD; Management of Acute Stroke; Geriatric Pearls; Management of CHF in the Context of Chronic Renal Failure; and The Interprofessional Spine Assessment and Education Clinic. Presentations will be of interest to physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.
A light buffet breakfast will be served starting at 8:30 am. The conference will begin at 9:00 am sharp. Refreshments and a buffet lunch are included.
Please join us on May 5, 2021 for a locally organized, high quality, Geriatric Education Day.
