October 18, 2022

Presented by Drs. Rosalyn Plotzker, Akanksha Vaidya, and Eric Tang

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) continues to see statewide increases in all reportable sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia.

For many patients, these STIs manifest as a complex syndrome that involves local and systemic symptoms. This webinar is the first of a two-part series, featuring Drs. Rosalyn Plotzker,

Akanksha Vaidya, and Eric Tang of the CDPH Sexually Transmitted Diseases Control Branch who will lead a case-based discussion on the presentation, diagnosis and syndromic management of STIs.
