Register for the Focus on the Female Patient Conference

Women's health continues to evolve, and many new and updated practice guidelines have recently been released related to the care and treatment of female patients. Physicians need to stay up to date on the broad array of changes taking place in women's health. 

Several upcoming live webcasts on women's health are available through the TMA Education Center. The courses detail evidence related to diagnosis, management guidelines, prevention strategies, and new, as well as controversial, therapies of common diseases relevant to women's health — across the lifespan — with an emphasis on practical clinical knowledge.

The presentations will broadcast live from Southern Medical Association's 25th Annual Focus on the Female Patient Conference. Visit the TMA Education Center for more information or to register for a webcast.
