PES Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide quality global CME/CE programs for healthcare professionals, catalyzing opportunities for collaboration with national and international colleagues, while fostering cross-cultural perspectives and partnerships in healthcare education and the delivery of quality patient care.

Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:
PES is fortunate to have dental and medical practitioners representing a variety of specialties participating in the CME/CE sessions. PES understands the importance of offering inter-professional healthcare education, allowing colleagues to gain cross-specialty perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. The need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners.

Delivering quality healthcare with limited resources across a variety of widespread geographical environments, multicultural groups and locales is an ongoing challenge for any healthcare system. South Africa, Botswana and Zambia are faced with these issues along with an increasing incidence of communicable and non-communicable diseases and high child mortality rates in the population due in part to the lack of access to medical facilities, education and a reliable transportation infrastructure. Centers of Excellence have begun to be established in rural areas with the support of global health organizations providing medical delivery models focusing on community access to healthcare education, treatment and prevention of disease.
US practitioners also face quality healthcare delivery challenges in rural and urban multicultural communities and the increase in occurrence of non-communicable and communicable diseases is ever more global in focus. Now, more than ever, it is important for medical /healthcare practitioners to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease.

Exploring solutions to these challenges with in-country professionals provides opportunities for practitioners to enhance healthcare delivery models and best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.

Planned Healthcare Topics Include:
• Overview of Healthcare and Delivery Systems in Southern Africa
• The Chronic Burden of Disease in South Africa
• Updates in Travel Medicine
• Environmental Health and Integrative Solutions
• Emerging Healthcare Issues: Treatment and Prevention
• Medical and Dental Challenges in Remote Areas
• Oral Health in Africa: Infrastructure, Education, and Training
