As we enter the spring with our lowest COVID case rates in two years and roll back various recommendations and requirements on masking and gathering, many cautiously hope for a new phase of the pandemic. Simultaneously, we watch in trepidation as a new variant takes hold across the globe and causes cases to increase across Europe and Asia. How will this variant impact our management of the pandemic and exposure to COVID-19?
Join us on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, from 12 – 1 p.m. for the latest installment of our monthly Virtual Grand Rounds to learn from experts about pediatric COVID and vaccines, and emerging variants overseas.
We will hear from an infectious disease expert who will review COVID-19 in children, pediatric vaccines and offer advice on methods to communicate with families regarding vaccinating their children.
We will also welcome back our state epidemiologist, Erica Pan, M.D., who will share the latest information about the state of COVID-19, the potential for new variants, and the availability of therapeutics in California.
The 60-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.
