The 6-week foundation program to start your postnatal recovery journey Course runs 11.15am-12.15pm Tuesday 11 September - Tuesday 18 October. Babies welcome. With all the AMAZING changes that your body’s experienced these past 9 months, you might also be feeling unsure what exercise is appropriate for where you’re at, together with what you should or shouldn’t do. Some of the thoughts you might be having right now are: How do I set about restoring my core and pelvic floor? How do I work with my postnatal body to bounce back? How do I get myself back to pre-pregnancy fitness levels? How will I do this when I’m so busy and tired right now? And more importantly, where to begin so that you don’t just “go for it” (even though you possibly could). You want to avoid having to live with the lifelong consequences of too much, too soon – you know, those postnatal “delights” of unresolved abdominal separation, sneezy pees, unintentional leakage “down there” when you exercise or organ prolapse. Some of these things only really ever show up on full colour decades down the line. What if you spent the first few (short) weeks getting some truly solid rehabilitation groundwork in place as a new mum from which you can continue to build up your strength and fitness to help you get back to what you love? Enter the FIT New Mama Postnatal Recovery program that will get your postnatal body stronger from the inside out Just. Like. That. Picture this: Being able to restore your abdominal muscles + pelvic floor so that you are not having to worry so much about accidental small leaks when you laugh or cough Getting your strength + fitness back in a safe way so that you feel confident you’re doing all you can to support your postnatal body Being able to pick your little one without permanent backache or wondering if you’re damaging yourself Having more energy to better look after yourself and your family – raising babies is a demanding job Knowing what nutritious meals you can prepare quickly to aid your postnatal healing Being encouraged to take some time for restorative work (you’ve got permission!) And me at your side to support you and make the process a lot easier (yes, please!) Notice that I haven’t said a thing about getting the baby weight off and you back into your old pre-baby clothes? Although that’ll come, that’s not the overriding focus of this program. If it’s important to you, then of course it’s important. But for now the focus is on postnatal recovery and healing – and to do this, we’re building a stronger mama – from the inside out. Who is this program for? This program is for you if: You’ve recently birthed your baby (whether vaginally or c-section) + want to improve your core connection + pelvic floor condition, as well as address those back, hip, knee + shoulder aches You birthed your baby some time ago, but didn’t properly address your postnatal rehab at the time You wish to heal your diastasis recti (abdominal separation) You want to improve your “mum tum” but realise it’s going to require something different to abdominal “crunch” exercises and calorie restriction to achieve this You have “oops” moments, such as sneezy pees, leak a little when laughing or running, or experience escaping wind at often the most embarrassing times + want to be confident about social situations You want to learn how to heal and protect your postnatal body not just now, but also for the longer term Please note: This course is for the conservative management of abdominal separation (diastasis) and pelvic floor concerns. All attendees are required to complete a pre-screening health questionnaire prior to attending. If this course is not suitable for you, you will receive a refund in full. What’s involved? Stop wondering if heel slides and “squeeze + release” pelvic floor exercises are THE WAY to “close the gap” on abdominal separation and strengthen your pelvic floor… or whether you need to count or restrict calories to shift your “mum tum.” This innovative program will probably open your eyes as to all the things your postnatal recovery actually does need to include to get the job done. Over the course of 6 weeks you’ll be: Reconnecting with your core + pelvic floor (hello again!) Building strength the smart way from the inside out Learning how to breath optimally Getting your body better aligned Improving those functional movement patterns (such as squat, lunge, lift – in fact, all those things you’re probably already doing in everyday life, BUT BETTER) Alleviating those aches and pains + begin toning … all designed to set you up for a positive postnatal healing journey. Plus, you’ll also learn about postnatal nutrition in order to optimise your results the easier way. And…you’ll also reduce your risk of injury for when you’re ready to ramp up your fitness levels. Wondering how this works? Enrol in our FIT Mama Postnatal Recovery program and here’s what you get. Personalised assessment of where you are in terms of postnatal healing. We’ll also consider your physical + emotional wellbeing as these are equally important to consider 6 x 60 minute weekly sessions that are designed to build upon your postnatal recovery week on week Short, safe, effective home workout program in between our sessions to enhance your results Suggested quick-prepare meal ideas to help nourish your body and postnatal healing. (I mean, who really has hours to spare whipping up wholesome meals. Wouldn’t you rather be doing something else?) Weekly emails to keep you on track and our private Facebook group to inspire and support you, so if you hit a sticky patch we’ll help you get unstuck in a flash. Videos of the exercises we do in class and other resources you can use at home. Most importantly, an experienced postnatal coach to train you the right way so that you can get back to the things you love. To ensure the best results for you, you’ll be expected to allow 10-15 minutes every day for the exercises, as well as look at ways to include the other learnings shared each week into your lifestyle so that over time they become habit. Are you ready to: Restore your core + pelvic floor properly that you minimise injury + support your postnatal rehab, not hamper it? Feel empowered that you’re building up your postnatal strength + fitness in a safe + confident way? Be stronger + fitter to improve your wellbeing? Be more energised to help meet any of life’s little challenges that come your way? Give yourself the healthiest start to your postnatal recovery? Enrol today and let's get you started!

In honor of New Haven Craft Beer Week, The Beer Collective is holding a very special beer dinner featuring four of our favorite CT breweries.  Collaboration is the name of the game, and this beer dinner will feature various inter-brewery collaborations between Fox Farm, Kent Falls, Lasting Brass and Counter Weight Brewing.  Our first collaborative beer dinner will feature six beers, five courses, and every attendee will receive a Beer Collective gold glass.  Tickets are $75 including taxes and gratuity.  Fox Farm Brewery is located on a thirty acre parcel of farm land in the town of Salem, Connecticut. The building that houses the brewery is a 1960's barn that has lived many lives.  After several decades housing a small dairy operation the barn fell into a state of neglect when the cows left.  Fox Farm Brewing took over after years of sweat and planning and have been producing some of the best beers in the state in their year of existence.   Counter Weight's goal is to continuously honor long-held brewing traditions while exploring new and innovative methods to highlight each ingredient and delight the palate with every sip.  While they are known to produce some of the best IPAs in the state, their passion projects are a true delight, as every wood aged beer has exceeded the former.   Kent Falls Brewing had similar starts to Fox Farm on a former dairy farm.  The Camps Road Farm has been in continuous agricultural use for 250 years and is still home to some members of the Camp family.  Kent Falls believes in reestablishing a connection between brewing and their agriculture in their area.  They craft their beautifully soft farmhouse ales using solar power and their own house yeast culture.  While they are often known for their farmhouse ales, they have been making some noise with their delicious IPAs as well.   Lasting Brass Brewing is located in the old Pinshop Building in Oakville, CT.  Ed Silva built his reputation as a highly vaunted homebrewer and decided to honor his roots by setting up shop in a building with rich history near his life-long hometown of Waterbury.  Despite not even being two years old, Lasting Brass has made marks on the CT beer scene with their great New England IPAs, stouts, and farmhouses.   The beer dinner will take place Sunday, September 16th from 5pm to 8pm. Tickets to the dinner will be very limited, so purchase your tickets quickly.  If you miss out on a ticket to the dinner, don't fret, TBC is reopening to the public after the dinner from 8:30pm until midnight to let everyone else taste some of the collaborations.   Beers and food pairings to be announced shortly.

Sweet Mother is a 501(C)3 charity established to give underprivileged children both locally and globally a second chance through education. We believe that education helps the most vulnerable people transform their lives. The 2018 AWARDS EVENT will be held on Saturday, September 29th, at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, CT. We encourage your attendance and participation at this event. Tickets may be purchased here online. If you know one of these extraordinary women, please visit our website and nominate her for one of our awards at http://sweet-mother.org/  In recent years, Sweet Mother has built classrooms and provided annual scholarships at the FAWE (Forum of African Women Educationalists) Secondary School for Girls in Waterloo Village, Sierra Leone. Many of these girls were kidnapped, brutalized, and raped, during a 10-year war in Sierra Leone. This FAWE School has been a refuge for these girls who have lost everything. Many more children have been orphaned by the Ebola crisis in this part of West Africa and FAWE Sierra Leone has opened another facility to opportune education for these Ebola orphans. This year’s proceeds will also be used for the construction of a boarding home for the Ebola Orphans who lost their parents during this horrible crisis. Sweet Mother has raised funds and awareness of its educational objectives through an annual dinner dance event, The Sweet Mother Awards, which celebrates the outstanding accomplishments and strength of ordinary women who have successfully balanced motherhood, careers, and community service. This platform has created a network of individuals motivated to educate the underprivileged and provided for the exchange of ideas and experiences. In 2017, Sweet Mother, Inc. was able to provide scholarships to the FAWE schools in Waterloo, S.L,, financial support for educating Ebola orphans in Grafton, S.L., and funds to the St. Martin De Pors Academy, a middle school in New Haven, CT. Please contact Eugenia Chinsman at [email protected] for more information.

4th World Congress on Medical Imaging and Clinical Research About Conference Medical Imaging 2018 is an addition to the successful series of Medical Imaging and Clinical Research conferences; it is with immense pleasure and pride that we announce our upcoming “4th World Congress on Medical Imaging and Clinical Research” during September 3rd-4th, 2018 at London, UK. Theme: Fostering Treatment Through Integrative Approaches of Imaging Techniques and Clinical Research Scope and Importance of Medical Imaging and Clinical Research: Medical imaging aims in process of visual representations of the interior of a body and function of some organs or tissues (physiology) for medical intervention and clinical analysis. It reveals internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, helps to diagnose and treat the diseases. It is a type of biological imaging and incorporates radiology which uses several imaging technologies of X ray Medical Imaging, nuclear medical imaging techniques such as PET (Positron emission tomography) and SPECT (Single-photon emission computed tomography), Ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Optical Imaging, elastography etc. It helps in detecting and diagnosing many diseases such as Cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Neurological disorders (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease) and in drug development via small animal imaging with micro PET or micro SPECT, micro MRI, micro CT, fluorescence and bioluminescence imaging systems. There is a wide range of research and development in area of modeling, instrumentation, quantification and image acquisition are usually the preserve of medical, medical physics, computer science and biomedical engineering. Medical Imaging has gone through many development and dramatic changes in the innovative era. Radiologic and organ-oriented subspecialities of radiology have been developed based on modalities, organ systems and specific fields that includes breast, abdominal, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, cardiac, thoracic and genitourinary imaging. Modality-oriented subspecialities include nuclear medicine, ultrasound, interventional and MR imaging. Specific field subspecialities include women’s and pediatric imaging. It is easy to detect diseases earlier than even before with Medical imaging technologies. The imaging techniques have allowed the doctors to detect and diagnose the diseases non-invasively. It has also helped the doctors to learn more about human behaviors and neurobiology. Medical imaging has brought scientists from biology, physics and chemistry together to develop the technologies that can be used in many disciplines. Through molecular imaging, the physicians are able to look the human body on a cellular level and are able to detect the disease before the symptoms become apparent. Clinical research refers to the entire bibliography of a drug/device/biologic and it is a branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness of medications, diagnostic products, devices and treatment regimens intended for human use. These may be used for prevention, diagnosis, treatment or for relieving symptoms of a disease. It is different from clinical practice; established treatments are used, while in clinical research evidence is collected to establish a treatment. Clinical research is often conducted at academic medical centers and affiliated research study sites. These centers and sites provide the prestige of the academic institution as well as access to larger metropolitan areas, providing a larger pool of medical participants. These trials may be used for detecting, preventing, treating, diagnosing or for relieving symptoms of a disease. The clinical research ecosystem involves a complex network of sites, pharmaceutical companies and academic medical centers and affiliated research study sites. This has led to a growing field of technologies used for managing the data and operational factors of clinical research. Clinical research management is often aided by eClinical systems to help automate the management and conducting of clinical trials. Why to attend Medical Imaging 2018?4th World Congress on Medical Imaging and Clinical Research conference will be an ideal platform for researchers and decision makers in Medical Imaging and Clinical research to present their latest findings and learn about the advancement in Imaging Technologies and Clinical Researches. Many scientists and renowned experts will be a part of this conference. The two-day Medical Imaging 2018 conference will be organized through a series of plenary sessions where attendees can avail opportunity to both network and perceive leaders from the global academic and corporate medical imaging and clinical research communities.

This International conference is going to be organized round the theme "Fostering Treatment Through Integrative Approaches of Imaging Techniques and Clinical Research” which incorporates prompt Keynote Presentations, Oral Presentations, Poster Presentations, Young Researchers Forum and Exhibitions. Track 1: Medical Imaging Medical imaging aims in process of visual representations of the interior of a body and function of some organs or tissues (physiology) for medical intervention and Clinical analysis. It reveals internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, helps to diagnose and treat the diseases. It is a type of biological imaging and incorporates radiology which uses several imaging technologies of X ray Medical Imaging, nuclear medical imaging techniques such as PET (Positron emission tomography) and SPECT (Single-photon emission computed tomography), Ultrasonography, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Optical Imaging, elastography etc. It helps in detecting and diagnosing many diseases such as Cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Neurological disorders (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease) and in drug development via small animal imaging with micro PET or micro SPECT, micro MRI, micro CT, fluorescence and bioluminescence imaging systems. There is a wide range of research and development in area of modeling, instrumentation, quantification and image acquisition are usually the preserve of medical, medical physics, computer science and biomedical engineering. Fusion of Imaging Modalities: The merging of imaging modalities such PET/SPECT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI helps in providing more full gamut of imaging scans with improved capacity to discriminate normal from abnormal tissues and produces co -registered images. The main clinical fields of PET/MRI are cardiology, oncology and neurology. Medical Imaging Conferences | Clinical Research Conference | Radiology Meetings Track 2: Radiography Radiography is an Imaging Technique using electromagnetic radiation to view the interior parts of the body. An image is created when a beam of X-rays is produced by an X-ray generator in the form of electromagnetic radiation is projected on the object. Radiography applications include Medical radiography and Industrial radiography. Medical radiography means the object that is being examined is living. The rest other radiography is regarded as industrial radiographic work or industrial computed tomography. There are over 10,000 hospitals worldwide that uses radioisotopes in medicine. The most common radioisotope used in medicine in diagnosis is technetium-99 with some 40-45 million procedures per year accounting for about 80% of all procedures used in diagnosis worldwide. Radiology Imaging is one of the best techniques in medical imaging which has a peak position on advanced imaging techniques. The process of medical images is usually carried out by the radiographer, often known as a Radiologic Technologist. Track 3: Nuclear Medicine Nuclear medicine is a medical Imaging that uses radioactive tracers or radiopharmaceuticals to assess functions of body and to diagnose and treat the disease. Specially designed cameras and a computer to create images of the inside of body, allow doctors to track the path of these radioactive tracers. The two most common imaging modalities in nuclear medicine are: · Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) · Positron Emission Tomography (PET) SPECT scan provide 3D images of the distribution of radioactive tracer molecules that have been introduced into the patient’s body whereas PET scans also use radiopharmaceuticals to create 3D images. The main difference between PET and SPECT scans is the type of radiotracers used. Track 4: Radiation Oncology Radiation oncology is a branch of oncology that involves the controlled utilization of radiation to diagnose cancer and other symptoms caused by cancer. Radiation therapy is the word used to describe the actual treatment delivered by the radiation oncologists. They require precise imaging of internal anatomy so that it is well adapted to the tumour and organs at risk. Indeed, morphological imaging such as computed tomography is already recommended for radiotherapy planning. But radiation oncologists are also considering other imaging modalities for treatment planning and imaging tools capable of controlling patient motion during treatment. Imaging play an important role during treatment planning and delivery of radiation therapy via techniques such as: 4D computed tomography, morphological and functional MRI, positron emission tomography, and imaging devices mounted on accelerators. Cancer Summits | Medical Imaging Conferences | Radiology Meetings Track 5: Pediatric Radiology Pediatric (Paediatric) radiology is a section of radiology involving the full body imaging of newborn, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Adolescents are introduced to pediatric radiologists since developing bodies are more liable to the adverse effects of radiation than are grown person of equivalent size. Mainly used Pediatric Imaging Techniques: Pediatric X-raysPediatric body CT scans with low-dose adaptive statistical iterative reconstructionPediatric body MRI scansPediatric fluoroscopy for assessment of swallowing, diaphragm, gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract.Fluoroscopic-guided nasogastric and feeding tube placementsPediatric ultrasound-guided biopsy and Doppler imagingPediatric pneumatic intussusception reductionPediatric CT and MR angiography, urography and enterographyPediatric percutaneous cecostomy tube exchangesPediatric Radiology Meetings | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Conferences Track 6: Neuroradiology Neuroradiology is a section of radiology focusing on the imaging peripheral and central nervous system (spine and the brain) and the head and neck. Imaging modalities used in neuroradiology include Computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diagnostic angiography, ultrasound and myelography. Interventional neuroradiology is an evolving specialty for minimally-invasive percutaneous and endovascular treatment of brain, neck and spine diseases. Pediatric Neuroradiology is devoted to the neuroimaging of the pediatrics or children. Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Conferences | Clinical Research Meetings Track 7: Molecular Imaging “Molecular Imaging” originated from the field of radiopharmacology and can be broadly defined as the in vivo characterization and measurement of biologic processes at the cellular and molecular level inside organisms. Molecular Imaging potentialities are applicable to the diagnosis of diseases such as neurological, cardiovascular and cancer diseases. This imaging technique uses biomarkers to help image particular targets or pathways. Its ability to image fine molecular changes opens a wide range of exciting possibilities for various medical applications. The important veins of research are gene expression imaging and novel biomarkers development. Molecular Imaging Meetings | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Conference Track 8: Abdominal Imaging Abdominal Imaging is a specialty of Diagnostic Radiology, providing diagnostic imaging and intervention of abdominal and pelvic disorders. This specialization provides extensive clinical experience for optimal patient care and interactions with medical and surgical subspecialties. Mainly used imaging modalities for abdominal imaging are X-Ray, Ultrasound (US), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Medicine Techniques, and Fluoroscopy. Track 9: Cardiovascular imaging Cardiovascular imaging techniques include echo-cardiogram, coronary catheterization, intravascular ultrasound, Cardiac CT angiography, Cardiac PET scan and Cardiac MRI. An Echocardiogram is a test that uses high frequency sound waves to make images of your heart’s chambers, valves, walls and the blood vessels (aorta, arteries and veins) attached to your heart. Coronary catheterization is a minimally invasive process to access the coronary circulation of heart using a catheter. It is performed for both diagnostic and interventional purposes. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is also known as a percutaneous echocardiogram, is a medical imaging methodology using specially designed, long, thin, complex manufactured catheters attached to computerized ultrasound equipment to visualize the lumen and the interior wall of blood vessels. Cardiac Imaging Conferences | Cardiology Meetings | Medical Imaging Conference Track 10: Dental Imaging Dental Imaging is used to produce three dimensional images of teeth, nerve pathways, soft tissues and bone in a single scan. Compared to intraoral images, panoramic imaging is a quick approach to acquire an image of the whole dentition. This sort of imaging has a relatively low radiation trouble for the patient considering the anatomy it covers in single exposure. A panoramic image gives you an overview of the patient’s oral health. Dental cone beam computed tomography is a special type of X-ray equipment, which is used when regular facial or dental x-rays are not sufficient. Dentists use dental imaging for many reasons; to find hidden dental structures, benign or malignant masses, bone loss, and cavities. Dental Imaging Conferences | Dentistry Imaging Meetings | Medical Imaging Conference Track 11: Pathology Imaging Pathology imaging mainly aims to digital imaging in anatomic pathology to diagnose and improve the patients’ health. This will enable greater access for Pathologists to know more about the scanners for real time viewing of the image and the précised image will improve the clinical and medical imaging, reproducibility and research productivities. Digital optical imaging will have a significant and progressive impact on the future development of anatomic pathology. Computer technology advances will continue to bring new innovations to departments of pathology imaging. Pathology Conferences | Medical Imaging Meetings | Clinical Research Conference Track 12: Ophthalmic Imaging Ophthalmic imaging is a highly specialized form of medical imaging which creates detailed images to support the diagnosis and treatment of a range of eye conditions. It covers a wide range of scope of photographic services that incorporates many aspects of commercial and medical photography. Ophthalmic photography can be done through the use of highly specialized equipment used to document parts of the eye like the cornea, iris, and retina. Images passing through the clear structures of the cornea and lens are focused there to give us our view of the world. Special instruments called fundus cameras, when used by skilled photographers, can document the condition of this miraculous anatomical structure. It allows the clinician to record the findings from clinical ocular examination in an objective, reproducible, transmissible and durable manner. Ophthalmic Imaging Meetings | Medical Imaging Conference | Clinical Research Conferences Track 13: Imaging in Gastroenterology Gastrointestinal tract imaging is very useful for research and clinical studies of patients with symptoms of gastrointestinal tract and in visualizing anatomy and pathology. Advances in non-invasive imaging modalities including ultrasound (US), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) etc, have revolutionized the way in which the gastrointestinal tract diseases are diagnosed. The resolution of imaging data is constantly being improved and 3D acquisition, tools for filtering, enhancement, segmentation and tissue classification are continually being developed. Gastroenterology Imaging Conferences | Radiology Events | Medical Imaging Conferences Track 14: Computer Assisted Tomography In Computer - Assisted Tomography, a computer process the data received from radiation and constructs an image computationally and this technique is widely used as compared to conventional tomography because it can readily image both hard and soft tissues while conventional tomography is poor at imaging soft tissues. CT also called as X-ray computed tomography or computerized axial tomography (CAT scan) makes use of the computer processed combinations of X-ray images that are taken from different angles to produce tomographic images that can be manipulated to demonstrate various bodily structures that is based on their ability to block the X-ray beam. It has become an important tool in medical imaging to supplement medical ultrasonography and X-rays. Track 15: Applications of Imaging The Medical Imaging has a wide variety of applications which is helping the patients to know the early emerging diseases like tumor and cancer. Various technologies are introduced to diagnose the diseases and form the images of internal aspect of the body such as Mammographic imaging, Breast Imaging, Cardiovascular Imaging, Abdominal Imaging, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Thoracic Imaging, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Nuclear Medical Imaging, Ultrasonography, Optical Imaging, X ray Medical Imaging, Elastography etc. Medical Imaging Conference | Clinical Research Conferences | Radiology Meetings Track 16: Advances in Medical Imaging and Diagnosis The field of medical imaging has grown tremendously due to the improvement in technologies and the advancement in digital and communication technologies. We can discuss vascular imaging with ultrasound, high-resolution computed tomography of the thorax, magnetic resonance imaging applications, and picture archiving and communication systems. Its ability to faster imaging yield better information and the imaging technologies helps in the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases such as lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, heart diseases and so on. Advances in Cancer Imaging: Cancer which is the abnormal growth of cells has the potential to spread to other parts of the body. The researchers are developing new therapies and with the help of imaging technologies, it is developing a way to restrict the growth of cells. Medical imaging aims in the management of patients with cancer. It has become an important element not only to detect the early cancer but it also helps in determining the stage of cancer. Medical Imaging Conferences | Clinical Research Conference | Radiology Meetings Track 17: Clinical Research and Trials on Different Disease HIV/AIDS: clinical trials are research concentrates done to discover better approaches to avoid, recognize, or treat HIV/AIDS. Cases of HIV/AIDS clinical trials incorporate investigations of new HIV prescriptions, investigations of antibodies to counteract or treat HIV, and investigations of solutions to treat diseases identified with HIV. Clinical research is the speediest approach to figure out whether new medicinal ways to deal with HIV/AIDS are sheltered and powerful in individuals. The advantages and conceivable dangers of taking an interest in a HIV/AIDS clinical trial are disclosed to study volunteers before they choose whether to take an interest in a review. Clinical trials participation can be an extremely important part of basic health care for all groups. Many investigators have stated engaging a more representative population in research is important to research applicability as well as minority population. Minority patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have often received care below the medical standards. HIV-positive African Americans were significantly less likely than whites to be started on antiretroviral therapy or to have received care below the medical standards. Despite the clear impact of race on disease management and outcomes, minority participation in clinical trials evaluating new treatment for well-known diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and HIV have continued to be at low levels. Clinical Trials for different diseases and disorders are conducted for evaluating one or more interventions for treating a disease, syndrome, or condition and also finding ways to prevent the initial development or recurrence of a disease or condition. These can include medicines, vaccines, or lifestyle changes, among other approaches. Some examples of the diseases/disorders for which clinical trials conducting are Cardiovascular, Digestive system, Respiratory system diseases and other parasitic, viral, bacterial and fungal diseases. And Clinical Trials on behaviors, mental, sleep and eating disorders. Clinical Trials Conferences | Radiology Events | Medical Imaging Meetings Track 18: Pre-Clinical Research Pre-clinical research also named preclinical studies and nonclinical studies is a stage of research that begins before clinical trials, and during which important feasibility, iterative testing and drug safety data is collected. More than 600 clinical research centers are there worldwide, and approximately 1500 universities in which pre-clinical and clinical researches are going on. Clinical research funded by government grants like National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, etc., companies doing research and development, and non-profit foundations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Clinical Research Conferences | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Meetings Track 19: Future of Clinical Trials The future of clinical trials illustrated as follows. Access and engage the patient online – Attract patients to the trial – Consent patients & convert to subjects – Remotely manage subjects and collect data. The sponsor plans to engage the patient through social media such as Facebook, and regular e-mail updates in order to attract the patient to the trial, and once the patient agrees to learn more about the trial, the sponsor mails the patient a package containing mobile health devices, which collect medical diagnostic data and sends that data to the sponsor. The patient turns on the tablet, which contains an electronic consent and a video of a physician explaining the clinical trial in detail. Humanization in digital media is believed to be an effective tool that is used to communicate with patients. During the clinical trial, the subject is able to access live physicians either virtually or through nearby medical community centers. Remote nurses visit the subject at their homes to collect samples. In addition, the patient uses the mobile health device to automatically upload study data directly to the sponsor's EDC database. Clinical Trials Conferences | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Meetings Track 20: Clinical Data Management and Statistics Clinical data management is the process of collection, cleaning, integration and management of subject data in compliance with regulatory standards. It is a critical phase in clinical research, which leads to generation of high-quality, reliable, and statistically sound data from clinical trials, this has been facilitated by the use of software applications that maintain an audit trail and provide easy identification and resolution of data discrepancies. CDM also supports the conduct, management and analysis of studies across the spectrum of clinical research. The ultimate goal of CDM is to assure that data support conclusions drawn from research. Achieving this goal protects public health and confidence in marketed therapeutics. Clinical Research Events | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Meetings Track 21: Clinical Trial Supply Management The conduct of clinical trials is one of the most expensive aspects of the development of new medicinal products. It is important, therefore, that the studies should produce high-quality data in the shortest possible time. More companies are trying to use single, larger, complicated trials in an attempt to gain the greatest amount of information about a product and thus reduce the lead time to market. A key element in ensuring this goal is the close cooperation between those responsible for the provision of the clinical trial supplies. The provision of clinical trial supplies is usually organized by a special group, often within the product development department, and it is prudent to discuss a proposed trial with this group at an early stage so that any potential difficulties can be identified and resolved. The major steps in clinical trial supplies are 1) Placing an order for clinical trial supplies 2) Manufacturing of clinical trial supplies 3) Blinding of clinical trial supplies 4) Obtaining comparators 5) Packaging 6) Labeling 7) Documentation 8) Expiry dating 9) Dispatch of supplies 10) Disposal of clinical trial supplies. Clinical Trials Conferences | Radiology Conferences | Medical Imaging Meetings Track 22: Clinical research on Cardiology A case report on Cardiology gives an appropriate convention for all cardiologists by rendering their important clinical cases of late occurrence. Studying from medical cases provides valuable experience for clinicians, students and paramedical staff -members. Rare medical reports and conditions discovered through the latest methods of examination are energized. Moreover, studying diagnostic methods from medical cases and the interpretation of symptoms is significant to train and burgeon the thought processes which are being used in the clinical field.

The adjustments in example of oral malady have additionally expanded the extent of clinical research with move in center of research to investigate obscure etiological element and etiopathogenesis. Subsequently the general pattern is towards the expanded request of prepared and experienced clinical agent in dentistry. An expansion in subsidizing for clinical research is definitely on the grounds that examination financing if utilized as a part of fitting bearing will decrease huge social insurance cost for the administration and enhanced personal satisfaction for the patient. Additionally there is extent of enhancing general wellbeing of patients as well, if extension is done on oral wellbeing research. This examination incorporates clinical trials looking at treatment of dental maladies; item quality and working, for example that required for biomaterials in orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics and pedodontics; oral cleanliness materials and techniques; considers concentrating on nature of human services. Behavioral science considers in clinical dental research, to inspect issues, for example, quiet adequacy of dental treatment as well as preventive technique with wellbeing advancement. Concentrate on control of major etiological component like plaque control and tobacco de-enslavement by suitable behavioral strategies are under real extent of clinical dental research. Dental Imaging Conferences | Dentistry Imaging Meetings | Medical Imaging Conference Track 24: Clinical Research on Neuroscience Clinical Research on brain diseases, as on any disease affecting humans, often proceeds from taking promising results produced in studying an animal model of a disease and applying these results to the first studies in human patients who have that disease. These first studies in patients usually determine whether the animal model has accurately portrayed what is actually occurring in the human disease, and whether the intervention works safely in patients. This first research in humans also tries to determine whether these interventions, which appeared to work in the animal model of the disease, also show promise in treating patients who have the disease. Medical Imaging Conferences | Clinical Research Conference | Radiology Meetings Track 25: Clinical Research’s on Gastroenterology Session include various Clinical Research’s on Gastroenterology and their related aspects · Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and related techniques · Colonoscopy, polypectomy, and related techniques · Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography · Capsule endoscopy and small bowel enteroscopy · Gastrointestinal motility procedures · Dietary treatment of gastrointestinal disease Clinical Research Conference | Radiology Meetings | Medical Imaging Conferences Track 26: Case reports A case report is a means of communicating something new that has been learnt from clinical practice. It could be about an unusual or previously unknown condition, a rare presentation or complication of a known disease, or even a new approach to managing a common condition. A case report provides the detailed report of symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. Case reports may contain a demographic profile of the patient and play major role in the field of medical research and evidenced based medicine. Moreover, case reports can serve as an early warning signal for the adverse effects of new medications, or the presentations of new and emerging diseases.

Beyond Recovery and Innate Thought are hosting a wellbeing and resilience retreat for professionals. Even the most positive and optimistic people will inevitably experience personal and professional setbacks and challenges. It is how quickly we rebound from these setbacks and how much baggage we carry forward that makes all the difference. Our resilience is equally linked with our ability to access our clarity of mind and calm at times of challenge and uncertainty. Beyond Recovery works with prisoners in a custodial environment. We have seen first hand the challenges and strains prison and support staff are under. If wellbeing, clarity of mind and experiencing resilience were ever important, they certainly are for this group of professionals! After the resounding success of our past retreats we have scheduled our next event for September 2018. The retreat is for three full days and you are requested to do no other work during that time. Think of this as a Mind Spa where you can relax and explore where wellbeing and resiliency comes from and how we can all access it regardless of our circumstances!   Links to local accommodation and eateries for those wishing to stay close and make the most of the beautiful surroundings are below and we will also send these to you when you book. Although lunch is not provided we ensure you have plenty of time to explore the local eateries, and there is even an on-site cafe! If you work or live in an environment where your wellbeing and resilience is being continually tested, this retreat is for you. Participants from our previous retreat said… “I’ve realised I am resilient, which means I can handle anything. I’ve never experienced this deep feeling of peace ever before in my life.” “There were a couple of times where I found myself drifting away to another place, a place of peace, contentment and fulfilment, the likes of which I have not experienced for many years. In fact on the final day I went home and was doing some tinkering etc then I found myself just smiling to myself for no apparent reason at all… strange and nice, very nice.” “I used to think my busy thoughts were helping me, now I see that they can get in the way! After having returned to work, I feel more productive.” “Giving myself a Mind Spa has made me realise how much time I spend worrying about things I don’t need to worry about.” “A true spa for the mind. Really loved seeing wisdom popping off in people like self opening champagne… such a beautiful celebratory experience. I really got to experience sitting back from the inside, not having to do, not having to give, not having to get some place other than here… Sitting back from the inside, I saw the energy of thought, the energy of it to propel and ignite, and the no-thing of it that we have no words for… Blessed and bliss full.” “I feel lighter and more peaceful, able to deal with anything.”   FAQs  How can I get to the venue? If you are driving, there's plenty of on site parking. If you're traveling by public transport, the nearest train station is Rugby, 6 miles away.
