    Target Audience            
    This activity is targeted toward all physician specialties.
    Statement of Need 
    The declaration of the COVID-19 global pandemic from the World Health Organization in March 2020, resulted in new concerns for pregnant women. Pregnant women have had increased risk of severe maternal and neonatal morbidity from similar viral diseases. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was unknown what the effects of COVID-19 would be on pregnancy. Additionally, with the launch of the COVID-19 vaccine, the effects of this on the mother and unborn child were unknown. Providers were unclear as to how to advise patients. This program will provide the latest recommendations and research highlights regarding prenatal care and the efficacy and risk of the COVID-19 vaccine; as well as updates in the treatment of pregnant patients with COVID-19.  Additionally, the risk factors for severe COVID-19 will be discussed. Following this program, providers should have the latest information on how to advise their pregnant patients as well as those who are considering pregnancy. 
    Objectives 
    At the conclusion of this offering, the participant will be able to: 
    Describe the increased risks and consideration of pregnant patients of COVID-19. Discuss the latest COVID-19 vaccination recommendations and effectiveness during pre-pregnancy and pregnancy.  Describe the standard of care and treatment protocols for pregnant patients with COVID-19. Review the latest research on the effects of COVID-19 and pregnancy.

    Define the scope of gastric intestinal (GI) cancers. List the risks, red flags and symptoms of GI problems that are associated with GI malignancies. Describe the applicable screenings and diagnostic guidelines. Discuss the role of the multidisciplinary team in the treatment of GI cancers.
