Preventive Health for Adults: Current Screening Guidelines for Heart Disease and Cancer

Saturday, 10/20- 3:30pm – 4:50pm

Learning Objectives

  • Distinguish between preventive vs. diagnostic services
  • Review the latest screening guidelines for major contributors of heart disease (high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol)
  • Discuss the latest screening guidelines for breast. cervical, colon, lung, and prostate cancer

Target Audience

The intended audiences for this initiative include internists, family practitioners, and other primary care clinicians on the front-lines of patient care.
