Egg Harbor, WI US
October 4, 2018 to October 6, 2018

The purpose of this meeting is to provide attendees with clinically relevant information about the rapidly changing updates and clinical practice guidelines and has been designed to update regional primary care providers on advances in a variety of internal medicine topics with a dual focus on improving their own clinical practice and highlighting the referral expertise of The Medical College of Wisconsin.
