Join Lewis Landsberg, MD, Irving S. Cutter Professor of Medicine Emeritus and Dean Emeritus, and current chief residents in the Department of Medicine for a lively and interactive discussion of a current case and the best diagnostic and treatment options. Following the case, join fellow residency alumni for cocktails and dinner, and enjoy sharing some of your favorite moments from residency. Hosted by The Landsberg Society, an alumni organization for former Department of Medicine housestaff. We're pleased to be included in this year's annual Alumni Weekend. Please visit feinberg.northwestern.edu/alumni/alumni-weekend or call 312-908-1892 for details.
The aim of this course is to provide up-to-date information about the cardiovascular care of women of all ages for health care providers. On the same day, and often with the same speakers, there is a course with similar topics for the community. The concept is to educate women and their health care providers with much of the same information. The community course is interactive and stresses healthy lifestyle issues. The professional conference is a CME conference assembling experts in the field to discuss the latest advances and research. Both courses have been well received by their respective audiences.

FRIDAY RESEARCH CONFERENCE LECTURE by Allergy/ImmunologySpeaker: Carole Oskeritzian, PhD
Assistant Professor, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology
University of South Carolina
This meeting will adopt an evidence based, guideline driven update of the critical domains in cardiovascular medicine. Our world-renowned faculty and guest speakers will deliver seminars on hypertension, prevention, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease, and acute coronary syndrome. Significant new data and summaries of guidelines will represent the platform for our discussions. A recurring feature of the summer program is the link with the American College of Cardiology. We have traditionally hosted the outgoing ACC president to provide a what s new in the ACC lecture. We also have acquired ACC co-sponsorship and will once again offer Maintenance of Certification for all attendees. This benefit is embedded in the registration fee. MOC is facilitated by a series of IT support services including real-time Q & A via a moderated iPAD as the questions are reviewed and an unique Northwestern Medicine CV CME APP to aid in navigation of MOC questions
While pulmonary hypertension remains a challenging disease, there has been an increased awareness by clinicians from the routine use of diagnostic tools such as Doppler echocardiography and the availability of the many pulmonary vasodilator drugs. Because it is uncommon, it is difficult for physicians to develop sufficient experience and expertise unless they are part of a specialty center. The etiology can be multifactorial, making it difficult to know the dominant cause in some patients and thus requires a meticulous approach to arrive at the correct diagnosis. The program is designed to increase knowledge of the presentation and diagnosis of the different etiologies of pulmonary hypertension and address ways to implement the latest practice guidelines into clinical practice. The program is designed to improve the competence of physicians in managing patients who present in the community, and know when to refer to specialty centers for advanced care.
Speaker: Kathleen Sullivan, MD, PHD, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

The Year in Infectious Diseases is an annual symposium focused on contemporary challenges in the field of Infectious Diseases. This year's symposium will focus on antimicrobial resistance, infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship. Each session will have several speakers focused on providing the science that supported a successful intervention that will be demonstrated in a case-based real-world experience. Speakers will focus on 3 topic areas: resistance mechanisms of gram positive bacteria, gram negative bacteria and fungi and contemporary management strategies for treating multi-drug resistant bacterial; approaches to hospital-based infection surveillance, emerging epidemologic methods for tracing infections and environmental measures to mitigate against infection transmission; and antimicrobial stewardship metrics and implementation strategies.
