TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Health Department will join health experts for a conference to give updates on sexually transmitted diseases and HIV in Pima County.

The Arizona AIDS Education and Training Center collaborated with the California STD/HIV Prevention Training Center to develop the workshop, according to a news release.

The two-day conference on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9 will provide current epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment information on STDs and HIV using an interactive format and case studies.

Health department officials recommend the course for physicians; advanced practice nurses and physician assistants in both public and private settings; as well as clinicians involved in STD control and prevention programs.

"It is critical to support evidence-based care of patients across Pima County," said Dr. Francisco Garcia, Director of the Pima County Health Department. "We are pleased to be able to provide this excellent educational opportunity for health care providers in our community and within the Health Department, so that we are all able to provide the best service based on the most current data that is available on testing and management of STDs and HIV."

The Pima County Health Department will host the course at Abrams Public Health Center at 3950 S. Country Club Road. The course is free with a $30 fee for 9.75 hours of continuing medical education credits, the release said.

The course will last from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
