ANPA ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING 2021: Emergency Care and Emerging Infectious Diseases in Nigeria (JS2107A)

July 8, 2021 to July 9, 2021

This 2-day live online conference is designed for an inter-professional and multidisciplinary audience that are involved with or play a role in health care in the context of diagnosis, prevention, treatment, cure, or mitigation of disease in humans. Immigrant health care professionals; those serving minority populations in the US; and those engaged in global health outreach in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), particularly sub-Saharan Africa (with particular focus on Nigeria), will find the technical content useful, while benefiting from a unique opportunity to network with members of one of the largest groups of international medical graduate physician networks in the US. While a portion of the program is devoted to the theme on “Emergency Care and Emerging Infectious Diseases in Nigeria”, the program is designed to be broad in scope and appeal, encompassing issues and topics affecting all areas of health care, with patient welfare and well-being at its focus. Examples includes cross-cutting topics related to mental health and wellness, innovative surgery such as separation of conjoined twins, disruptive innovations in healthcare, a scientific abstract session, and “hot topics” covering some of the latest biomedical breakthroughs across all the health professions. Such a broad scope is justified by the increasing complexity of modern health and patient care. 

Target Audience

This activity is designed for practicing primary care physicians, internists, cardiologists, dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other allied health professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and analyze ways multidisciplinary and inter-professional teams can best collaborate to promote positive health behavior and deliver best health outcomes to under-served communities across the United States and in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).
  • Discuss “cutting edge” biomedical discoveries and best practices in the health professions to help improve health care delivery in under-served communities across the US and in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC)
  • Discuss current patterns of emergency care conditions, including infectious disease emergencies in under-served communities across the US and in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC).
