The 3rd Annual Peninsula Infectious Diseases Conference made its much-anticipated return in September following a 3-year hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, hosted by San Mateo County Health with support from your SMCMA, was titled “Bridging the Gap: Integrating Clinical Care and Public Health to Improve Patient Outcomes.”

The program was free for physicians, public health, and other health care professionals and featured the latest guidance and resources for preventing, diagnosing, and treating infectious diseases. Experts and specialists were featured from CDPH, Stanford University, UCSF, and UC Davis with lectures given on topics such as rabies, long COVID, syphilis, Avian influenza, and tuberculosis.

The conference ran from September 11-12 at the College of San Mateo Theatre and provided attendees up to 12 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Over 140 health care professionals registered for the conference, including over 40 physicians who attended the event.

Through its collaborative efforts with the San Mateo County Health System, SMCMA provided the design of conference materials, marketing and advertising outreach, and on-site registration support. This event demonstrates SMCMA’s ongoing commitment to improving patient outcomes and promoting quality medical care for the people of San Mateo County.
