MMA Joins with MOA and Maine CDC for Important Webinar—with CME—on Outpatient COVID Meds
The Maine Medical Association has been working closely with the Maine Center for Disease Control and the Maine Osteopathic Association to plan an important and informative webinar concerning five approved and currently available outpatient meds to fight back against COVID hospitalizations and death. CME is available.
Maine has been averaging around 100 hospitalizations a day. This is a sharp drop from the recent surge of Omicron-variant infections in Maine in January and February, yet it does not mean we are in the clear. Over 30 COVID-19 deaths were reported to Maine CDC in the first half of March.
The periodicity of hospital waves is too high, and that volatility is not something our healthcare system is built to handle.
We, the Maine Osteopathic Association are jointly promoting a webinar with State Epidemiologist Isaac Benowitz, MD, of Maine CDC., Tuesday, March 29 at noon EDT to learn more about the five approved and available medications available for outpatient settings that can radically reduce the risk of hospitalization and death.
The event has been approved for CME for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits & a maximum of 1.0 AOA Category 2-A credits.
The event is scheduled for this upcoming Tuesday, March 29th at noon. You can register here: https://mainestate.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ew4lNcE9Q7GPaS7Su8Nj6A
Check out the following message from Dr. Benowitz for more detailed information on what to expect during the webinar Tuesday.
