5th Annual Time Critical Diagnosis Symposium hosted by The Research Foundation

KANSAS CITY, Mo., (Mar. 19, 2019) – The Research Foundation will host the 5th Annual Time Critical Diagnosis (TCD) Symposium Friday, April 26 at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel.

The TCD symposium has been planned and designed for those that are involved in the care of TCD patients. The state of Missouri enacted laws creating coordinated statewide emergency medical services for the time-critical conditions of trauma, stroke, and the potentially fatal form of heart attack known as STEMI. All of these conditions require quick assessment, diagnosis and treatment by a facility that can provide timely, definitive care to minimize risk for preventable complications and death.

The symposium, sponsored by the Bixby Institute, The Research Foundation, and Kansas City Southwest Clinical Society, offer physicians six (6) AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ and nurses six (6) contact hours. Emergency service personnel can also receive continuing education at the symposium.

Features speakers include:

Iftekhar Ahmed, MD: Research Neurology Associates

J. Andrew Cusser, MD: Envision Physician Services

Ryan Hegg, MD: Midwest Radiology, Inc.

Mark A. Rotert, NP: Midwest Trauma & Surgical Specialists

Brian M. Friedman, MD: Midwest Heart & Vascular Specialists
