Cream City Connections Conference 2015
This conference will feature two unique and very important topics. First, with the rapidly changing field of surgical oncology, our physicians need to develop strategies that utilized the latest evaluation and assessment strategies for early disease intervention and post-operative in-clinic care. Secondly, there is significant misinformation about dermatologic issues and African American skin. Many patients are misdiagnosed or their conditions are not effectively managed because many physicians are not trained in how to manage these skin and hair conditions on dark skin. A number of African American patients in our region seek their care in Chicago because physicians in the area are unable to manage the conditions successfully, or patients and their primary care physicians are unaware of Dermatologists in the area who are able to address these issues. Lastly, many of the patients served by members of Cream City Medical Society represent medically underserved populations. This requires all our members to be well versed in a variety of medical topics regardless of their specific specialty. Our goal is for our members and colleagues to develop team-based collaborations with one another and thus improve patient care of the surgical oncology patient and the dermatology patient.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Cream City Medical society. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
