Medical conference this weekend

The Saint Lucia Medical & Dental Association (SLMDA), in collaboration with the University of the West Indies Faculty of Medical Sciences, Barbados, will have the 9th annual Continuing Medical Education (CME) Conference here from October 19 to 20.

Themed “The Burden of Chronic Illnesses in Saint Lucia in 2013 – A Public Health Issue”, the conference is to be held at Bay Gardens Hotel, Rodney Bay.

The conference aims to focus on the factors which determine the efficiency of health systems generally — the identification of illnesses prevalent in society; education; access to and availability of care; and budgeting for good health.

“We are partnering with organisations both in the private and public sectors, and hope at the end of the weekend to stimulate positive change in the interest of our patients and our nation,” SLMDA said in a statement.
