MDH and MATEC present…
an evening with Dr. Tony Mills
- Preliminary data shows our new syphilis rates have increased by 31% compared to the same time period last year. The majority of cases affect our MSM community, with a nearly 60% co-infection rate with HIV.
- Medical Management of HIV and Syphilis Co-infection will cover the pathology of syphilis and HIV co-infection, treatment issues, providing your patients with open dialogue on personal risk and sexual health, and screening guidelines. This workshop is appropriate for providers who work with patients who are MSM and/or living with HIV infection, especially those in infectious disease or public health STD clinic settings. Also encouraged to attend are community HIV prevention and care providers serving clients who are MSM and/or living with HIV infection.
- The LA-based physician Tony Mills is a leading clinician in the fields of men's health and HIV disease. He serves as the primary care provider for 1500 patients including over 600 living with HIV. With a philosophy that his patients be immersed by positive energy and good health, Dr Mills contributes to this by working with his patients to take them to the next higher level of health though honest dialogue around client-centered concerns such as sexual risk, recreational drug use, eating right and physical fitness.
