This 20th annual interdisciplinary conference offers a unique update for primary care and subspecialty health care professionals and others who care for children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities and complex health care needs. This year's conference will be live-virtual, employing a live stream webinar and various user-friendly interactive virtual platforms. The live presentations will be recorded and made available for 30 days so you can review any content you might have missed. As in past pre-pandemic conferences, non-profit exhibitors will be available to provide resources to help you to deliver more informed care for patients and clients of all ages. Our topics in 2021 include ever-present concerns about COVID-19 and updates on screening, diagnosis, and vaccines, as well as telehealth, mental health issues, cultural differences and disparities, crisis intervention, and the role of law enforcement related to improving interactions and encounters with children and adults with developmental disabilities. Several practical presentations describe putting research into practice in genetics, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, and aging. Presentations by our expert faculty should be of interest to pediatricians, family physicians, nurse clinicians, psychologists, and internists who are involved in the health care of individuals across the lifespan with developmental disabilities, as well as to those in other health-related disciplines including health policy, psychiatry, school health, social work, and case management services. While the conference is designed for health care professionals, we welcome families and individuals with developmental disabilities who wish to learn from the various presentations.   Date and Time: On Thursday March 25, 2021 at 8:00 am (ends Friday March 26, 2021 at 4:30 pm) Prices:Physicians: USD 350.00,Other Health Professionals: USD 250.00,Family/Community Members (no CME): USD 100.00
