As we enter our second year since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still hold many questions about the nature of the virus and how to best combat it: Will the Delta variant surge continue to decline? What will winter bring? How will we provide vaccine booster shots and when? Join us to learn more on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, during our Virtual Grand Rounds: Variants, Vaccines and Epidemiology.
In this sixteenth installment of our monthly Virtual Grand Rounds, we will hear from Erica Pan, M.D., California’s State Epidemiologist, about the state of COVID-19 in California, efforts to keep the virus at bay, progress on vaccines and vaccination efforts, and the hope for keeping schools open this year.
We will also hear from experts at the forefront of research on the viral genomics of COVID-19 who have spearheaded large international collaborations investigating the emergence, spread and evolution of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, among other pathogens.
The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.
If you are unable to attend the live webinar, they will be available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the California Medical Association and California Health and Human Services Agency. CMA is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The California Medical Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
