|Event:||SSS-02 GOUT: No Longer the Malady of the Patricians|
|Time:||10:00 to 12:00|
|Presenter:||Jon Dixon, MD|
|This review will focus on the history and evolution of our understanding of this fascinating disease. There will be a number of historical vignettes, a little bit of biochemistry, a bit more medicine and physiology but nothing too difficult. Dr. Dixon will also discuss a number of common myths and misconceptions about the disease. Treatment and diagnosis will not be the focus. Just for fun, for those who think they already know all they need to know about gout, there will be the opportunity to try a pre-lecture quiz before the start.|
