Enhancing the Latest Healthcare Strategies for US Military and Veterans
Earn 18 Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits at this event!
IDGA’s Military Healthcare Summits have become highly recognized and respected forums where members of the military healthcare community can come together for an advanced and focused curriculum on up to date clinical diagnosis and treatment techniques, lessons learned from the battlefield and panel discussions that also allow participants to earn continuing education credits.
Recognizing that the care and well being of our warfighters does not stop when they return home, IDGA are proud to welcome a diverse group of subject matters being addressed by both DoD and VA speakers. The San Diego edition of our healthcare portfolio will focus on the US Navy, US Marine Corps and US Coast Guard’s military healthcare initiatives and advancements within the past year and for years to come.
As our troops return from theater, healthcare professionals need to identify many of their symptoms, both physical and behavioral. Many of the psychological wounds, such as TBI and PTSD, are diagnosed after warfighters return, which is why this topic is so instrumental at this year’s event. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the current issues facing our Warfighters from Level 1 through to CONUS and back to the “playing field.”
By participating in IDGA’s Military Healthcare San Diego Summit, you will have the exceptional opportunity to take part in continued discussions where debate, dialogue, and networking are encouraged. After the event delegates will understand the future of military healthcare, advanced technological solutions and latest Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs initiatives.
