Anxiety, Aesthetics, COVID and the Media - The Ultimate Impact Intersection

With prevalence among women, an estimated 31% of adults will experience an anxiety disorder in their life – consequently having a significant impact on your practice. The pandemic, combined with social and political stress this past year has caused anxiety to escalate, with an enormous impact on the population’s work, home life, finances, and social interactions - affecting not only your patients but also you and your staff. In this timely and insightful Keynote Address, Lisa Durette, MD, a psychiatrist and assistant professor at the UNLV School of Medicine, will focus on specific presentations of anxiety relevant to your practice. Diagnostic criteria, treatment options, and data about anxiety and body dysmorphia will be explored. You will leave with a better understanding of how to address symptoms and support your patients with a lens focused on the impact of the changes we’ve experienced this past year.
