Open admission to eligible categories, no tuition or ticket


Date: Monday, March 24

CME Credits: 2.00

Location: Mile High Ballroom 3C

Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Director: Lynn A. Drake, MD, FAAD

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Determine the cause of the hair loss in some cases, often in a short time.
  • Diagnose and categorize hair loss in women more effectively.
  • Treat hair loss appropriately.

Women with diffuse hair thinning can often have a significant underlying cause. The physician must frequently be a detective. This session will identity seven key areas that the physician can explore to determine the possible underlying cause of hair thinning, many of which may be serious diseases. Methods to do this in a timely manner (15-minute office workup) will be discussed. Finally, methods of treatment related to the underlying etiology will be identified.
