Influenza CME Webinar
Last year, more than 120,000 people in Pennsylvania contracted the flu, and over 500 were hospitalized. Vaccination is the first line of defense, but early diagnosis and prompt antiviral treatment are important for those already infected.

Thomas C. Raff and Jean David Dumornay, MBA, discuss how to reduce complications and hospitalizations associated with influenza. This program has been approved for AMA, MOC, ANCC, AAPA and AAFP credits.
