What conference attendees said about this speaker and lecture:
"Dr. Mazor's toxicology session was excellent because it provided not just an overview of the topics but an up-to-date discussion of current trends and issues."
"Toxicology is particularly heplpful on an annual or at least biannual basis to stay up-to-date on those new drugs/"fixes" that patients might be into or that might be high-risk for infants--otherwise I think I'd be woefully naive about toxicology, aside from watching the evening news."
For nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals in all settings.
