LabRoots Continues to Strengthen its Educational Presence in Clinical Diagnostics & Research at 10th Annual Virtual Event

Learn the latest scientific disciplines, advances in laboratory testing, and new technologies and treatments in every stage of patient care on November 14th

LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, will be hosting presentations during the one-day agenda at its free Clinical Diagnostics & Research Virtual Event, scheduled for November 14th, 2019.

This conference assembles academia and industry, clinicians, research scholars, and medical experts in an interactive forum to reveal diagnostic solutions that will address health challenges, such as future directions of sepsis management, strategies to improve laboratory stewardship, and monitoring patients’ opioid use via urinalysis and other mediums during a keynote delivery by Douglas Rohde, Supervisor of Chemistry and Toxicology at the Lake County Crime Laboratory.

Delving into new progress in clinical diagnostics, research and medicine, participants will gain knowledge on emerging technologies in laboratory medicine and the opportunities and challenges presented during a panel discussion with Dr. Damien Gruson, Professor and Head of the Department of Clinical Biochemistry at Cliniques Universitaires Saint Luc, and Dr. Anna Fuezery, Corresponding member if IFCC C-MHBLM, North Sector POCT Medical Lead, Alberta Public Laboratories, and Associate Clinical Professor of Laboratory Medicine at the University of Alberta. Together, they will share insights into sustainable health and how emerging technologies are shifting the paradigm of the management of chronic diseases, and the approaches to point of care testing (POCT) error quantification, monitoring and mitigation to mobile health environments.

The program of high-level speakers also includes thought-provoking topics like: Interferences with Thyroid Function Tests and Patient Safety,” “Thyroid Autoimmunity and Female Infertility,” “Drug Testing in Regulatory Monitoring,” and “Discovering Latent Knowledge by Applying Machine Learning Techniques to QIAGEN Resources.” Notably, November is National Diabetes Month and by commemorating World Diabetes Day (November 14) and increasing awareness of this disease, attendees will understand the role and benefits of proficiency testing in achieving global outcomes for Hemoglobin A1c presented by Dr. Paul Yip, Head of Clinical Biochemistry, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Sihe Wang, Planning Committee Chair, Director of Clinical Laboratories at Akron Children’s Hospital and Professor at North East Ohio Medical University and Cleveland State University said, “There are plenty challenges and opportunities in the field of clinical diagnostics including the opioid crisis, lab stewardship, and new technologies that are revolutionizing lab medicine. On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my honor to welcome you to this exciting event providing the latest update on these important issues.” Wang added, “I value such well-organized events hosted by LabRoots since they deliver recent developments without the hassle of travel. With budget cuts in many healthcare organizations, virtual education events will become an important venue for continuing education.”

“We are thrilled to serve the scientific community marking the 10th year producing our Clinical Diagnostics & Research event,” said Greg Cruikshank, Chief Executive Officer of LabRoots. “It’s such a significant conference where innovative research is uncovered and where global leaders connect to make an impact on medicine, and the diagnosis and treatment of disease.”

Produced on LabRoots’ robust platform, the collaborative online event plus exhibit hall, poster hall, and networking lounge allows attendees to learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop and mobile devices. By participating, Continuing Education credit (1 per presentation) can be earned for a maximum of 14 credits.
