LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBINAR or IN-PERSON – YOU CHOOSE
LIVE ADVANCED COURSE in SUTURING + ESSENTIAL DERMATOLOGY

We’re all experiencing social and professional issues secondary to COVID-19.  Continuing education endeavors shouldn’t also suffer.  As a response to COVID-19 precautions initiated by most of our state governors, including Tennessee where I live and host events, LACS + DERM 2020 will be hosted as both an in-person course (if you can make it in person) AND as an interactive livestream on the two days of the conference.

All you need is a computer, a webcam if you want to interact with me digitally, and some skin-on chicken thighs.

We will send you all the supplies you need for practicing suture and biopsy techniques.

Questions will be answered in real-time.  I will be able to visualize your closure techniques and give you real-time feedback.  Easy peasy.  Sign up today – opening this to a webinar platform means our available student slots will fill up quickly.
