Event Overview
Welcome message:

The purpose of this CME activity is to introduce new clinical paradigms, novel early detection technologies, and sophisticated laboratory tests for the prevention and management of a wide range of important medical problems. Coronary disease, cancer, sleep apnea, hypertension, dementia, osteoporosis, erectile dysfunction, and diabetes are among the diseases considered with a view towards noninvasive diagnosis and cost effective preventive care.

Preliminary Objectives for Activity:
At the conclusion of this CME activity, participants should be able to:
--Incorporate broad-based preventive medicine principles from “A to Z” into an office practice
--Identify and appropriately treat blood cholesterol abnormalities to prevent CHD events in patients at intermediate to high risk for CHD
--Apply standard of care lifestyle and pharmacologic guidelines to treat individuals with blood pressure elevations
--Provide dementia-prevention guidelines and early treatment to patients in an office practice
--Deliver travel medicine advice to international travelers
--Diagnose and appropriately treat male patients with decreased bone density
--Comfortably diagnose and treat bipolar disease in a primary care setting
--Discuss the full spectrum of metabolic syndrome and why it is important for the primary care physician to maintain a high level of awareness
--Appreciate how to integrate the results of coronary calcification imaging into conventional risk factor assessment
--Review the roles and limitations of emerging imaging and physiologic tests in preventive cardiology
--Develop a practical understanding of the unique aspects of heart disease in women
--Consider sleep apnea in patients with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes and learn the value of recognition and treatment in younger individuals with non-classic signs
--Develop an appreciation of the roles and limitations of all colon cancer screening options and where CT colonography fits
--Individualize therapy based upon sophisticated lipoprotein analysis and new measures of inflammation

Speakers/Faculty:

James Ehrlich, M.D., Clinical Associate Professor, Dept. of Medicine (endocrinology), University of Colorado, Denver; Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, The George Washington University School of Medicine; and Medical Director, Early Detection Technologies, LLC.

Dr. James Ehrlich is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, Denver (endocrinology) and was an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the department of medicine at the George Washington University Medical Center in Washington DC from 1999-2012. Ehrlich is the medical director of Early Detection Technologies, LLC, which advises on best practices involving biomarkers, imaging technologies and radiation protection. From 2007 to 2009, Ehrlich has served as the chief medical officer of Atherotech, a Birmingham-based cardio- diagnostic laboratory where he served primarily to educate physicians in lipidology and to set up primary prevention programs within office practices. During the launch of the CardioHealth ultrasound workstation in 2011-2012, Ehrlich was the senior medical advisor for Cardionexus (Houston), an affiliate of Panasonic Healthcare. 

Switching careers from anesthesiology to “high tech prevention”, he founded and became the medical director of Colorado Heart and Body Imaging in Denver (1997-2009), two preventive medical imaging facilities using electron beam tomography (EBT) and numerous other modalities for the early detection of coronary and vascular disease, sleep apnea, osteoporosis and some cancers. By 2002, Colorado Heart and Body Imaging became the “nation’s most technologically advanced and versatile screening center”. Beginning in 1999, Dr. Ehrlich has also medically directed HeartScanWashington DC, HeartScan Houston and HeartScan Indiana while consulting for several other imaging centers nationally. 

Considered an authority in the integration of imaging, physiologic and laboratory technologies with conventional office based assessment, Dr. Ehrlich has delivered over 200 lectures to physician audiences on 5 continents during the past 15 years and is the course director for two annual symposia on preventive medicine and new biomarkers. Involved in atherosclerosis research with investigators at two medical schools, Dr. Ehrlich is a founding member of the Society of Atherosclerosis Imaging and a co-founder of the Society of Cardiovascular CT. He is an active contributor to and task force member of SHAPE—the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication. Most of his research has focused on the monitoring of subclinical atherosclerosis in insulin resistant states and in Type 1 diabetes. Over the past 15 years, Ehrlich has made over 200 appearances on national and regional TV and radio discussing new methods for the early detection of disease and emerging concepts in prevention and wellness. Dr. Ehrlich helped develop U.S. Preventive Medicine and is a medical advisor to Premier Micronutrient Corporation with a particular focus on biologic radiation protection. After graduating with honors from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1976, he did his internship and residency training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center where he had been a Clinical Asst. Professor in the department of anesthesiology,a specialty he had practiced for twenty years. 

In 2009, he created the IDA (“Identify Disease in Advance”) Medical Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide access to advanced early detection tests in heart disease and cancer to individuals, regardless of ability to pay. A co-author of a multimedia CD called “The Physician’s Guide to Coronary Imaging”, he is now authoring a preventive medicine guide for the proactive consumer, while creating teleseminars and newsletters on biomarkers for physicians and the proactive individual. He is also the founder of MyPreventionDoc, an internet service which involves leading preventive physician experts in the dissemination of advice and news to the proactive citizen. He is currently writing the novel which forms the basis for a medical detective television drama concept he created. 

Wayne L. Peters, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and Assistant Clinical Professor of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine; Medical Director, Healthmark LLC and Director of Clinical Preventive Medicine, Colorado Heart & Body Imaging, Denver, Colorado.

Dr. Wayne L. Peters is a native of Rapid City, South Dakota. He received his BA from Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota (1969) and his MD from the University of Colorado (1973). He received his internal medicine training at the University of Florida, Jacksonville and was Chief of the General Internal Medicine Division at that institution from 1976 to 1982. From 1982 to 1984 he served as a Henry J. Kaiser Fellow in General Internal Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Following his fellowship, he remained at the Massachusetts General Hospital as Director of the Lipid Consultation Service and taught in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

In 1986, Dr. Peters returned to Colorado to assume his present postions as Medical Director of HealthMark LLC, a private preventive medicine clinic, and as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine and Preventive Medicine and Biometrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
