18th Annual CME Symposium
This advanced CME activity will provide participants with state-of-the-art information and practical guidance from internationally recognized experts on progress in managing HIV and viral hepatitis, including drug development and treatment, management of important comorbidities, and drug-drug interactions. The discussions at this meeting will allow clinicians to provide the highest quality of care in a variety of practice settings.
The primary goals of this activity are to increase each attendee’s competence to:
- Identify new antiretroviral drugs and drug combinations while exploring answers to uncertainties in treatment strategies
