LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Three members of the medical staff of Los Angeles’ Orthopaedic Institute for Children, including the organization’s medical director, will comprise the faculty for an afternoon of important clinical lectures to kick off the 76th annual Brennemann Lectures program Sept. 6 in Anaheim. The sessions are part of a three-day educational event sponsored by the Los Angeles Pediatric Society.
The lecture series will begin with Joshua Goldman, M.D., addressing “Pediatric Overuse Injuries,” which he has found to be increasingly common and parallel the increase in the intensity of youth sports activities. Dr. Goldman is OIC’s associate director of non-operative sports medicine and has also served as team physician at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Jennifer Beck, M.D., associate director of OIC’s renowned Center for Sports Medicine, will deliver a talk on “What Really is Little League Elbow” in which she will discuss the diagnosis, imaging and treatment of sports elbow injuries. In addition to her role at OIC, Dr. Beck is assistant clinical professor in the department of orthopaedic surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Earlier this year she was selected one of three 2019 traveling fellows by the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America and the Asia Pacific Pediatric Orthopaedic Society.
Rounding out the afternoon session will be a lecture on “Commonly Missed Injuries in the Pediatric Population,” conducted by OIC’s Medical Director Maurice Silva, M.D. During this important session Dr. Silva will review the clinical and radiographic characteristics of pediatric injuries and fractures that are commonly missed on initial evaluation.
Of note, Dr. Silva and staff recently opened OIC’s new pediatric urgent care center, Los Angeles’ newest and largest such center for children with musculoskeletal conditions.
All of the lectures provided by OIC are free with attendees eligible to receive continuing medical education (CME) credit for each lecture attended.
The Brennemann Lectures are one of the oldest and most established pediatric CME meetings on the west coast and consistently present relevant information in an environment that promotes communication between faculty and attendees. Over the years the lectures have involved countless renowned medical doctors, prominent political leaders and noted entertainment figures. More than 120 pediatricians and allied health professionals are expected to attend this year’s event.
