The Cough Heard Around the World: Coronavirus and COVID-19 Updates and Treatments
The Coronavirus global pandemic impacted almost every corner of the world. Those that were infected and went on to develop COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 challenged every aspect of medicine. From diagnosis to treatment it has been a race against the clock to find ways to perform mass testing and then to stabilize and treat patients with true guinea pig therapies. As the curve has begun to flatten out there is now time to focus on the future of this organism and disease by evaluating antibody testing and development of one or more vaccines. This course will discuss the pathophysiology of coronavirus treatment options antibody testing and vaccines as well as the clinical trials that are evaluating these topics worldwide. Case anecdotes and examples will be included to create an optimum learning environment for this timely topic.

Myopia Control Update
Myopia has been gaining emphasis as a global epidemic in eye care. There has been a lot of research already done to answer questions as to why it may occur, progress, and the impact it has on ocular health. This has led to an interest in finding ways to slow or halt progression as a means to control it and prevent the risks it may pose later in life. This course will review established information and discuss the new data in the area of myopia control, particularly the LAMP studies and information surrounding MiSight. The presentation will conclude with describing ways of applying this new information in clinical practice.
