Long Live with Vascular Health

Wilkes-Barre, PA US
May 8, 2024
This is a live Educational Activity. With regard to PAD, there is little understanding in the evaluation of the PAD patient which starts with physical exam and the ABI (ankle brachial index). The education symposium will help teach about these topics. With regard to venous disease and DVT, the PCP and the ER provider have now become the front-line providers of care for these patients with DVT in the outpatient arena. These providers have taken on this role with little education and this course will help provide additional information about DVT and its management.

Physicians: $95.00
