We have just completed our Early Bird Registration for the 52nd Ontario College of Family Physicians’ (OCFP) Annual Scientific Assembly (ASA) in Toronto.

The OCFP ASA is a continuing professional development conference designed by family doctors, for family doctors. It includes sessions on current clinical and emerging primary care issues. Each year, the ASA conference brings together close to 1000 delegates including family physicians, residents, medical students, nurse practitioners and other health-care professionals from across the province.

We are very excited to be participating again this year!! Come and join us on Thursday November 27th, 2014 at 10:45am for our seminar, Untangling the helix: genomics for primary care providers.  We will use a primary care case-based approach to discuss new advances in genomics and how they impact practice. Cases will include pediatrics (developmental delay/autism, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy/sudden death) and adult (Alzheimer disease, Factor V Leiden, multiple sclerosis) conditions.  There will be time for a question and answer session so bring your clinical genetics questions.   The seminar will be delivered by family physician, Dr. June Carroll, geneticist, Dr. Judith Allanson, and genetic counsellor, Ms.  Shawna Morrison.
