Biologic Modifiers for Asthma

This activity will provide relevant clinicians with a greater understanding of the unmet needs in severe asthma, the asthma inflammatory pathway, and novel biologic therapies and their potential positioning within the therapeutic landscape. This may lead to improved treatment practices and better outcomes for the broader severe asthma population

Laren Tan, MD, MBA Assistant Dean, Continuing Medical Education

Obesity and Adverse Childhood Experiences

Substantial evidence documents an association between childhood trauma and the development of obesity across the life course. This session will describe new studies identifying behavioral, neuroanatomical, and molecular adaptations mediating the elevated risk of obesity in individuals exposed to early-life trauma. A better understanding of the early brain responses to trauma may contribute to innovative preventative, curative, and disease-modifying approaches to obesity.

Johnny D. Figueroa, PhD Associate Professor

Pediatric SARS-CoV-2: What We Have Learned

This lecture will be a discussion about Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and its implications for disease in children from acute illness to multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). We will discuss the presenting signs & symptoms along with treatments as well as touch on LLUCH data regarding MIS-C.
