Join us for the 12th Annual Basic & Clinical Immunology for the Busy Clinician

This 12th annual meeting will again attempt to provide a framework for busy clinicians who are interested in advances in basic and clinical immunology.  The meeting is divided into 3 sessions over 1-1/2 days.
In session 1 the meeting commences with a 30,000-foot review of the integrated immune response for those in need of a remedial review while other topics are chosen for the timeliness relevance and importance to the care of patients with immune mediated inflammatory diseases.  In session 2 a variety of clinical topics oriented around discrete IMIDS, with an emphasis on exploration of advances in immune-based therapeutics and/or immuno pathogenesis.  The final half day is dedicated to scientific advances in holistic and integrative care of IMIDS this year focusing on the challenges of chronic pain and fatigue and clinical practice.
