Title: *Two Day Program* CAMS 2020 Annual Scientific Conference X FCMS 20th Conference on Health Care of the Chinese in North America

Time: 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Location: Online

Statement of Need:
In late 2019, a novel viral illness, coronavirus disease 2019, resulting in pneumonia and severe acute respiratory syndrome was found in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. The disease has since progressed to become a world-wide pandemic with millions infected and hundreds of thousands lives lost. The medical community has courageously taken on the challenge to manage this mounting medical crisis. This virtual conference aims to address specific COVID-19 related gaps in knowledge, competence and practice. We specifically address updates in testing and detection, epidemiology, vaccination progress, organ systems affected, and treatment strategies. We highlight important topics including palliative care, physician and team wellbeing as well as the expanding use of telehealth. This year will also mark the 20th Federation of Chinese American and Chinese Canadian Medical Societies (FCMS) Conference. This will be our first virtual conference. These conferences continue to focus on the Health Care of the Chinese in North America. At this international conference, we examine these topics on a global level with particular attention to similarities and differences in regional responses and outcomes. Finally, we will address education and knowledge gaps in health disparities.

COVID-19 represents a unique health challenge for all health care professionals. Surveys conducted from members of our society have indicated that these gaps exist and this ‘virtual’ conference will allow for didactics as well as opportunities for questions and answers. We have keynote speakers and panel discussions featuring experts from around the world. Through this CME conference, we aim to help increase knowledge, improve competence and bridge practice gaps.
