The 2013 Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) Scientific Conference is being held at the Chestnut Conference Centre, University of Toronto, Canada on November 1st and 2nd, 2013 and is sponsored by Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States (MHAUS) in conjunction with The University of Toronto. To register or for more information call: 011-1-607-674-7901, or email: email@example.com, or click on this link The MH Conference is titled "Clinical Significance of Ryanodine Receptor-1 (RYR-1) Gene Variants: New Insights into Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment of RYR1-Linked Diseases."
The conference is for healthcare professionals and is being held in honor of Dr. David MacLennan for his contributions to our understanding of the genetics, pathogenesis and treatment of MH at the University of Toronto; and features presentations from MH experts from throughout the world, and an opportunity to submit posters and abstracts about MH.
Through lectures and interactive discussions with subject matter experts in molecular genetic diagnosis, and muscle function in health and disease, this project will inform physicians and scientists who are researching malignant hyperthermia (MH) and its variants and those who care for patients with MH, heat stroke and muscle breakdown of the latest advances in the field. Sharing this information will advance genetic diagnosis of patients suspected of being at risk for MH, congenital muscle disorders, heat stroke and muscle breakdown with exercise.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of UPSTATE Medical University and MHAUS. UPSTATE Medical University is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Upstate Medical University designates this live activity for a maximum of 13.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physician should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Call for Abstracts & Posters:
As part of the MH Scientific Conference, there is an opportunity to present work related to the clinical presentation, pathophysiology, molecular genetics, management and treatment, epidemiology of MH and MH related disorders during the course of the conference.
