The March 22, 2017 OCGI Dinner Meeting was hosted by Gilead Sciences at Morton’s Steak House near South Coast Plaza. OCGI member, Truong Sinh Leduc, MD addressed the treatment of chronic hepatitis b for the 30 other OCGI members in attendance.
Taking a couple of steps back and reviewing hep b and hep c basics, differences and long-term effects, Leduc stressed the importance of taking all factors in to consideration when determining the treatment for each (i.e. nationality, gender, patient age, etc.). Building on these basics, he was able to provide numerous clinical examples of what to look for and how to treat those in the various stages of hep b. Further drawing off of his vast experience treating hep b patients, Leduc adeptly fielded the numerous questions and scenarios presented. Witnessing Dr. Leduc’s passion for his field and love of speaking, it is clearly evident that when young, he wanted to be a teacher. He satisfies his love of teaching by mentoring medical students and speaking to groups like OCGI.
Harold Sussewell, MD was this month’s lucky recipient of the Medelita $100 gift certificate as the sixth OCGI member to sign in for the evening.
In addition to the monthly gift certificate, Medelita has generously offered all OCGI members a one-time use discount code of 20% to be used on any Medelita products when they spend $100 or more. Simply visit http://www.medelita.com and enter OCGIDINNERPARTY at check out.
