2022 Update on NTM Infections

September 9-10, 2022
Kiawah Island Resort, Kiawah Island, SC

Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections are increasingly recognized but management decisions are complex. This conference will review risk factors and presenting features of patients with NTM infections, current practices for their diagnosis and management, and novel areas of research. A comprehensive approach to the evaluation and management of NTM infections will be reviewed including antibiotics and their monitoring, non-pharmacologic therapy, and psychosocial aspects of disease and treatment. Topics will also include how to advocate for the patient, how to work with an NTM center in co-management of a patient, and ongoing development of novel therapies. The program is designed for primary care, pulmonary, and infectious disease clinicians.

Course Director: Patrick Flume, M.D.

7th Annual Update in Gastroenterology & Hepatology

September 17, 2022
Mills House Hotel, Charleston, SC

The 7th Annual Gastroenterology and Hepatology Update conference will be held on September 17, 2022, in Charleston, South Carolina. The one-day conference is intended to provide practicing clinicians with authoritative updates on the investigation and management of a broad spectrum of digestive and liver diseases.

We recently passed the 50th anniversary of the founding of the GI Division at MUSC and have chosen to celebrate our alumni. Thus, all speakers are past MUSC faculty and fellows who have gone on to distinguished careers nationally and internationally. We hope that many other alumni will be able to attend. We are pleased to be collaborating again with the South Carolina Gastroenterology Association. Most of the program topics will be of interest to endoscopy nurses and staff, but we have added a parallel session for them.

Course Director: Peter Cotton, M.D.
