Overview

Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and the Amyloidosis Research Consortium (ARC) have partnered to provide a 1-day virtual, live stream AMA PRA-accredited conference. This will be an exciting, interactive educational event where attendees will learn about amyloidosis care and be able to connect with experts in the field.  This conference will be open to all specialties, but will be primarily targeted to practicing physicians and nurses that most commonly see and treat amyloidosis patients.

Led by an internationally renowned faculty team of amyloidosis experts, this conference will spotlight various aspects of the diagnosis, treatment and long-term management of amyloidosis. Attending clinicians will learn skills to identify, correctly diagnose, and treat amyloidosis patients in their clinical practice, as well as when and how to refer to specialty centers. The attendees will also learn about the value of multidisciplinary teams, and how to build an amyloidosis program to best support patients.
