NTM Lecture Series

April 27 - April 28

Purpose:

Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are ubiquitous in our environment. The clinical manifestations include but are not limited to chronic pulmonary infection, lymphadenitis, disseminated disease or skin and soft tissue infection. As we watch the incidence of tuberculosis drop to historically low numbers, the rates of infection due to NTM are increasing.

These infections are under recognized and cause significant morbidity and mortality.  Treatment options are arduous but with the right tools, patients will improve clinically.  We will have experts from across the country here to discuss this growing medical challenge.  Come join us for an invaluable educational experience.

National Jewish Health has a 123-year history as the leading respiratory hospital in the nation and is the only hospital devoted fully to the treatment of respiratory and related illnesses.

 

Who Should Attend:

Family physicians and internal medicine physicians, along with pulmonologists, infectious disease physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, and other health care professionals who diagnose and treat patients with Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM).
