Multispecialty webcasts and videos
The DKBmed weekly series of webcasts will continue to cover a wide range of topics for health care providers across all medical specialties who manage patients with COVID-19. These live webcasts will arm providers with the latest guidance and breaking data on COVID-19 treatments for both ambulatory and hospitalized patients.
Treatment Strategies for SARS-CoV-2 Variants
These webinars will focus on the effects of viral variants on viral transmissibility, morbidity, and treatment, and the importance of early intervention, including appropriate management with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and other available therapies active against the Omicron variant
These programs will feature extensive information on Inequities in social determinants of health. Several studies have examined the disparities in COVID-19 incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Inequities in social determinants of health likely contribute significantly toward increased risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Clinicians treating people from ethnic and racial minority groups must be kept abreast of new information as it emerges so they can keep up with the moving target that is SARS-CoV-2.
