Children and adolescents now spend more than 5-7 hours a day with a variety of different media. How does that affect their attitudes and behavior, and what can health professionals do about it? This talk will discuss the latest research in the field on the impact of media on babies, children, and adolescents, illustrated with abundant examples of both pro-social and potentially harmful media. In addition, a brief section will involve media training for health professionals about health-related issues important to them – how to talk to newspaper reporters, radio interviewers, and appear on TV. Topic areas will include media violence, cyberbullying, substance abuse, sex and sexuality, sexting, and the importance of the Internet, social networking, and cell phones

Numerous studies have shown the impact that various forms of bias can have on the delivery of care. For example, the concerns of women who present for treatment are more often ignored than those of men who present for treatment. And, the concerns of Black women, in particular, are ignored at their peril. This class explores the role of implicit and explicit bias in defining the systems that provide care in America. This course also includes strategies for individual professionals, and professionals in collaboration, to use in order to reduce disparities in access to and delivery of physical and mental health care services. This course meets the “Implicit Bias Training” requirements outlined under Michigan State Public Health Code.

6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
As an emergency medicine physician, the ability to swiftly decipher a patient's presenting complaints and conduct an initial physical examination is a crucial skill. However, some life-threatening issues may not be immediately apparent, leading to potential mortality and morbidity. For instance, during the Covid pandemic, anxiety was often misdiagnosed as the cause of dyspnea, failing to address the underlying problem of respiratory distress. By decoding the patient's complaint and carefully observing their physical presentation, a rapid differential diagnosis can be achieved. Equally important is the timely and appropriate implementation of interventions to address the underlying issue. Join this engaging class to enhance your problem-solving skills in the initial assessment of dyspneic patients, earning 3 CME/CE credits while gaining valuable insights into decoding complex medical presentations and providing effective and efficient care.
(Trainer, Ellen Wesley, DO, is a career full time Emergency Department physician practicing in Illinois. Dr. Wesley seeks to make her patient's lives easier by educating and empowering them. Outside of her career in medicine, Dr. Wesley brings laughter to others through standup comedy, a passion that she discovered a number of years ago. Dr. Wesley says ”I have a unique perspective or two… My perspective on problem-solving is somewhat unique due to my personal neurological circuitry, which encompasses both ADD and Dyslexia”. Dr. Wesley points out that these conditions provide insights into the different ways individuals perceive and solve problems. In fact, Stanford University once had a think tank that intentionally included dyslexic individuals to overcome impasses in their problem-solving process. Her three-dimensional problem-solving approach offers a fresh perspective, allowing for alternative views and innovative solutions.)
