Very intense and fast if you don't have an autoimmune/immunology background or foundation.
Dr Reuben Barrett DC, JD (8 Jul 2020)
Older DC's beware - no notes, fail the exam twice and you're out. 99.99% of this you did not learn in the 1980's so you are behind the eight ball the entire time -- good luck - a huge waste of time and money and no CE...

I would like to...

Description

The increasing rate of autoimmunity suggests that environment is playing a growing role in autoimmune disease. In this lecture, we will examine the underlying immunological mechanisms that drive different characteristics of autoimmune disease. We will cover how the endocrine system and nervous system impact disease severity and symptoms. Finally, we will lay the foundation for how gut dysbiois impacts regulatory T cells.
