GARWOOD — Union County’s school and health department nurses are invited to attend a symposium entitled “Understanding Pediatric & Adolescent Immunizations” which will be held at The Westwood, 438 North Avenue in Garwood on Thursday, Oct. 28.
The lecture will be presented by Geralyn Prosswimmer, MD, FAAP, a fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics; Medical Director of Hunterdon Pediatric Associates and an active member of the staff of the Hunterdon Medical Center. Dr. Prosswimmer participates in clinical research and clinical management.
The objective of the symposium is to update school and health department nurses concerning immunizations, expanding vaccine schedules and the risk of not vaccinating children which can result in secondary infections, particularly in young children and adolescents.
Two professional development hours have been granted for RN’s by the New Jersey Department of Education/Office of Program Support.
The buffet dinner will be at 5:30 p.m., followed by the lecture. Seating is limited; therefore Union County school and health department nurses who are interested in attending must register their reservation as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is Oct. 15. Only email reservations to Maria Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org will be accepted.
