Welcome to the GCB Virtual Conference 2020

We are excited for the opportunity to host a Virtual Learning Conference this year: Orthobiology in Sports Medicine and MSK Disorders

This digital event will include educational lectures, didactic presentations, image guided cadaver injections, live patient injections and live Q&A discussions with Regenerative Medicine specialists.

The Gulf Coast Biologics Training & Education Center would like to invite you to attend our Live Virtual Conference Orthobiology in Sports Medicine and MSK Disorders on November 7 & 8, 2020. We are excited for this opportunity. Our goal for this conference is to present the latest scientific data and provide you with practical tools for Regenerative Medicine treatment options. We have a dynamic line-up of presentations and live demonstrations that address everything from Bone Marrow and Fat harvesting to patient treatments and outcome tracking. We encourage you to ask questions in the Live Q&A sessions, share your experiences, knowledge and gain new resources. We hope you leave the virtual conference inspired, motivated, and better connected with Regenerative Medicine Therapies.

This two-day, educational virtual conference will review  the latest technology in advanced autologous biologics including; Clinical PRP, BMC Bone Marrow [Stem] Cells, and Adipose Tissue Concentrate. We will review the principles of MSK Ultrasound and Fluoroscopy, while outlining the differences in biological validation and patient tracking results. 

There will be LIVE demonstrations of:

 ~ Bone Marrow and Lipo-Aspiration Techniques

~ Biological Preparations of; PRP, BMC, Adipose Tissue Concentrate

~ Cadaver Precision Guided Injection Protocols

~ Orthobiological Patient Treatment Procedures

~ Imaging and Laboratory Validation Techniques

~ Integrated Patient Treatment Tracking

This is a great opportunity for professionals in the Regenerative Medicine field to come together, learn from each other, get motivated, get inspired, and discover new techniques that will help them make a positive difference in their practices, their communities and most importantly, their patients lives.

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center and Gulf Coast Biologics. Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
