Cite This Article

This year, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology course on infectious disease (November 8-11, 1997) will be held in collaboration with Emory University School of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The course, which will be held at the Emory University Conference Center, will be directed by Drs. Ann Marie Nelson and C. Robert Horsburgh, Jr. and will focus on newly emerging and reemerging diseases (including yellow fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, AIDS, bovine spongiform encephalopathy, cholera, diphtheria, tuberculosis, Mycobacterium avium complex, chancroid, meningitis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, fungal infections, malaria, babebiosis, filariasis, and emerging infections in captive wildlife). The course will also cover antibiotic resistance and the role of zoonotic infections and will feature a roundtable discussion of emerging infectious disease issues. The epidemiology and clinical features, as well as the pathology and pathogenesis of each disease, will be presented by experts in emerging infectious disease. An optional slide review session of 10 hours is available the day following the lecture series. (Approximately 30 CME credits)
