This series will introduce participants to quick exam techniques to assess tremor and rapidly narrow your differential diagnosis. You will also learn about treatment basics in PD and when to refer. The series will cover reliable recognition and differential diagnosis of chorea, including many medical and metabolic causes, and will highlight the most common genetic cause of chorea, Huntington’s Disease (HD), as well as effective new treatments for chorea.

Monkeypox Bootcamp

Monkeypox is a typically rare viral infection that is spread through close contact. The White House declared Monkeypox a Public Health Emergency in August, as the number of cases across the US and other countries continues to increase. In Colorado, the number and geographic spread of Monkeypox has increased since the first case was reported in May 2022. Based on the best currently available data, Monkeypox will continue to be a public health concern for the immediate future.
