Chagas CME

A stack of photos related to Chagas Disease with a picture of a boy with obvious symptoms on the top.

The Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria is pleased to announce its newly available Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) unit "Chagas disease: What U.S. Clinicians Need To Know." Chagas disease, caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, is endemic throughout much of Latin America; however, CDC estimates 300,000 or more persons infected with T. cruzi are currently living in the United States. Chagas disease can cause serious health consequences, such as heart attack, stroke, and sudden death.

This approximately one hour course, accredited for 1.25 hours of CME credit and 1.0 hours of CNE credit, is designed to inform clinicians about the epidemiology, risk factors, phases, forms, diagnosis, and evaluation of Chagas disease.
