JMC Medical Symposium to be Held in New Orleans

The Jeffrey Modell Center for Primary Immunodeficiencies at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans (JMC) is one of 196 of its kind in the world, and 40 in the USA focusing on the diagnosis, care, and treatment of people suffering with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDD). It has faculty members running specialized clinics for children and adults with suspected PIDD and consulting services at hospitals affiliated with the LSUHSC. The JMC mission includes patient care and also training of physicians in the diagnosis and care of PIDD. Its continuing medical education programs for subspecialists and general practitioners are designed to familiarize more physician groups with this complex group of diseases.  

JMC is hosting its seventh medical education symposium in New Orleans titled “Newborn Screening in Louisiana: Impact on Diagnosis and Treatment of Primary Immunodeficiency”. The meeting will be held at Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel on November 30th and December 1st, 2018. We plan to host national and locally recognized speakers. We expect approximately 80 – 100 physicians and medical school faculty to be present. The program will familiarize an audience of subspecialists and general practitioners in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine on neonatal screening and primary immunodeficiency diseases. Our target audience includes general physicians, pulmonologists, immunologists, allergists, infectious disease specialists, scientists, and organizations and individuals involved in new and upcoming diagnostic and treatment possibilities. All levels of interested trainees in science and medicine are welcome to attend. 

The Dean’s Seminar Series has moved!

These seminars will now be held on the second Wednesday of each month from noon to 1pm in CSRB 563, with lunch provided by the Dean’s office. Please join us!
