Interactive Educational Event Celebrates 25 Years Of Genetic Adv

AHMC Healthcare Inc., and Alhambra Hospital Medical Center Engage MedAssets for Enhanced Pricing Capabilities to Improve Overall Financial Performance - Yahoo Finance

Today: Hear about the latest data from investigators and how that data translates to care from clinicians and patients. Tomorrow: Investigators, the CF Care Team, and patients discuss the anticipation and uncertainty regarding advances in CFTR modification therapy. Through a presentation platform called ARRAY, each participant will have an iPad to view presentation slides, take pre and post assessments, direct questions to the AOTC faculty, and link to additional resources, and complete course evaluations. An enduring webcast of the event will be created and posted online at www.aotc-cf.org for clinicians unable to attend the satellite symposium. "The discovery of CFTR mutations in 1989 ushered in a new array of opportunities for cystic fibrosis treatment," said Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health. "Though that road has been long and complex, we are now starting to experience the much-awaited benefits. With the impressive progress that has already been made, and the remarkable teams of researchers and patients that are now working together, the future is looking brighter all the time." "CFTR modifiers have significantly improved outcomes and quality of life in patients whose CF is driven by mutations in this gene," added Stuart Elborn, Dean, School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences, Queens University Belfast. "Our goal now is to keep other patients with CF as healthy as possible so they, too, can benefit from more effective targeted therapies that will become available in the future." AOTC: CFTR at 25 is presented by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing in collaboration with DKBmed for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, social workers, and other members of the cystic fibrosis care team. Funding for the program has been provided by an educational grant from Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. <br>visit http://finance.yahoo.com/news/interactive-educational-event-celebrates-25-205400129.html
