CME Outfitters conducted a satellite symposium entitled, Personalized Medicine in Multiple Sclerosis: Examining the Path Forward at the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) annual meeting on May 30, 2012. The activity was attended by over 300 physicians, nurses, and clinicians with an interest in multiple sclerosis. This live, interactive symposium was captured on video and will be available as a certified activity at www.neuroscienceCME.com/CMW703 on July 2, 2012.
Because the opportunity to engage and connect with faculty is critical to the translation of the data, three (3) live Q & A dates have been scheduled to Ask the Experts.
Join the faculty to ask questions, pose your clinical case challenges, and to hear their insights on emerging data as the field moves toward personalized medicine in the management of MS. Please register in advance for these live Q & A sessions because we will be sending reminder e-mails and information prior to the events. Do not miss this opportunity to exchange your thoughts and questions with Drs. Lisak, Lublin, and Steinman!
This 30-minute Q & A session is not certified for CE credit.
