42 - CAPE G, Friday, September 26. October 2, 1997 Symposium by the Sea set for Oct. 3-5 at RBYCC Beebe Medical Center in Lewes, and its affiliate, Emory University System of Healthcare in Atlanta, will host their sixth annual "Symposium by the Sea," a three-day educational seminar for physicians from the Mid- Atlantic region, Friday through Sunday, Oct. 3-5, at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club. Physicians earn continuing edu- cation credits for their participa- tion. One of the goals of Beeli's affiliation with Emory is to pro- vide continuing medical educa- tion, not only to physicians and healthcare providers at Beelt, but also to those in the Mid-Atlantic region. Six physicians from Emory will present lectures on important health issues, such as updates in urology, orthopaedics, lipid metabolism, infectious diseases and allergic disorders. Physicians will receive 12 med- ical continuing education credits for their participation. David Roberts, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, Division of General Medicine at Emory Uni- versity School of Medicine, and Bhaskar Palekar, M.D., internist and chairman for Beeli Medical Center board of directors, will serve as course co-chairs for the symposium. The topics to be covered and their speakers are as follows: • Understanding the Impact and Mechanisms of Antibiotic Resis- tance, and Practical Update of Viral Infections: HIV and More, will be offered by Stephen W. Schwarzmann, M.D., associate professor of medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Emory Uni- versity School of Medicine. • Practical Strategies for Lipid Management, and Rational Use of Medications for the Treatment of Obesity, will be given by David G. Rolirtson, M.D., assistant pro- fessor of medicine, Division of Arteriosclerosis and Lipid Metab- olism, Emory University School of Medicine. • Anxiety in Clinical Practice: Making Sense of Patients Who May Not, by William C. Partin Jr., Who needs a shot against the flu? All people who wish to avoid _getting the flu during the coming winter are urged to get a flu shot between early October and mid- November. The only people who should not get a flu shot are those who are allergic to eggs. Of course, people who are running a fever should wait until they feel better. Those individuals who should make sure they get flu shots include the following: • People with chronic heart and lung diseases, including children with asthma. • Anyone age 65 or older. • Nursing home residents. • Adults and children currently under treatment for chronic meta- bolic diseases (including dia- betes), kidney dysfunction, spleen or liver disorders, hemoglo- binopathies, or people with sup- pressed immune systems as a result of disease or medication (including cancer treatments). • Children, ages 6 months to 18 years, who are receiving long- term aspirin therapy. (They could be at risk of developing Reye's Syndrome after influenza.) • Anyone who is HIV positive. • Pregnant women who will be giving birth between December and May. (The vaccine is safe for breastfeeding mothers.) • Pregnant women at any stage who would be at risk of complica- tion if they got the flu. • People who work with or live with high-risk individuals. • People planning to travel abroad. • People in essential positions who cannot risk missing work. 1997 Public Flu Shot Clinics 27 Terrace Road, Rehoboth Beach • 227-3861 Seminar on sleep disorders set for Oct. 3 Beebe Medical Center is offer- ing a Sleep Disorders seminar on Friday, OCt. 3, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Virden Center on the campus of the University of Delaware's College of Marine Studies. Speakers will include Michael Salvatore, M.D., pulmo- nologist, and Paul Howard, M.D., otalaryngologist. Call 645-3248. Most physicians offer flu shots. Patients receiving shots from their doctor's office will have the opportunity to check to make sure that all their other immunizations are current. People who wish to have shots at public locations should keep a record until March, 31, 1998, including the following: • where the person received this shot. • the date that the shot was giv- en • healthcare organization admin- istering shots. This could become important later, if someone has a serious chronic condition or experiences a change in health and a physician feels the patient may need a sec- ond shot to provide adequate pro- tection. The Division of Public Health (DPH) will only administer shots to people age 60 or older, those with chronic conditions and preg- nant women who will be in their second or third trimester during the flu season. A pregnant woman must supply a note from her obste- trician to obtain a shot from DPH. There is no charge for DPH shots, but donations are accepted. Chil- dren with chronic conditions are accommodated at DPH clinics, but it is preferable to make an appointment for a child to receive a shot at any of the state service center clinics DPH clinics will also offer pneumonia shots. VNA Delaware flu shot clinics are open to all interested adults. There will be a $12 charge for those not covered by Medicare Part B.
