Saturday, June 18, 2016 @ 7:30 AM – 12:30 PM

The Westin Austin At The Domain, 11301 Domain Drive, Austin, TX 78758

The symposium will follow a highly interactive case based format. A moderator will present a patient scenario that attendees would likely see in their practices. Through a series of questions, the panel will define possible diagnoses and will present relevant information on that disease state. Each case will have panelists that will provide different perspectives and address how each would be involved in patient management.
