Wildfires seem to have become a yearly norm in California. Join us on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, from 12 – 1 p.m. for the latest installment of our monthly Virtual Grand Rounds to learn from experts about the short -and long-term health impacts of frequent particulate exposure. In the past two wildfire seasons, scientists have also looked at the impact of wildfire smoke exposure on patients with COVID-19 infections.
In this webinar—COVID-19 Updates and the Health Implications of Wildfire Smoke—California State Epidemiologist Erica Pan, M.D., MPH, will discuss the evolution of COVID-19 in California. We will also be joined by John Balmes, M.D., an environmental health sciences professor at the University of California, San Francisco, whose research is focused on the respiratory, cardiovascular and metabolic health effects of various air pollutants and occupational agents.
The 60-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1 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 webinars, they are available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.
