DIAGNOSTIC PARASITOLOGY I: INTESTINAL ORGANISMS & ARTHROPODS
APRIL 19 —22, 2016 • CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION • ATLANTA, GA
Diagnosis of most parasitic infections is based upon the morphologic characteristics of eggs and larvae of helminths, cysts and trophozoites of protozoa, and immature and adult arthropods. Therefore, it is necessary to correctly process, examine, detect, and identify parasitic organisms from clinical specimens. During this four-day, intermediate-level, hands-on workshop, faculty from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will instruct participants in how to detect and identify medically important intestinal helminths, intestinal protozoa, and arthropods.
