Women's Lung Health


Friday, November 10, 2017

Joseph B. Martin Conference Center
Boston, Massachusetts



This course will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the clinical applications of sex differences and issues specific to women in lung and upper airway diseases. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to women's lung health care across the lifespan, this course will review emerging science on sex differences in lung and upper airway disease from experts in the fields of thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, otolaryngology, nutrition, and psychiatry. Learners in primary care, women’s health, thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, and otolaryngology will benefit immensely from this continuing education opportunity.

Topics include issues unique to women such as asthma in pregnancy and the differences in presentation, diagnosis, and management of sleep apnea, COPD, lung cancer, and pulmonary hypertension in women. Based on educational objectives, the formats include didactic lecture and case presentations, followed by question and answer periods. A multidisciplinary panel discussion as well as small-group break-out sessions will allow participants to hear from multiple experts and expand their learning based on their interests.
