Virtual | Apr 29, 2021

About the Course

Estimated to affect approximately 70% of women during their lives, vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) can cause significant discomfort and distress. Unfortunately, management of VVC remains suboptimal, and many women are inadequately treated or receive inappropriate antibiotic therapy. This symposium will focus on the impact VVC has on patients as well as feature discussion on emerging treatment options that offer favorable safety and efficacy and may represent an improved approach to patient care.

Speakers:

  • Jane Schwebke, MD
  • Michael L. Krychman, MD, MPH
  • Jack D. Sobel, MD
  • Susan Tuddenham, MD, MPH

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the Burden of VVC among women
  • Key differentiating characteristics for emerging treatments for VVC
  • Data for emerging treatments for the treatment of VVC
