The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) continues to see dramatic statewide increases in cases of congenital syphilis (CS), a severe yet preventable condition when syphilis is passed from mother to fetus. This webinar, presented by the California Prevention Training Center, features Dr. Eric Tang, public health medical officer at CDPH, who will provide a clinical overview of CS prevention and discuss the new Expanded Syphilis Screening Recommendations from CDPH as it relates to family planning and primary care providers.   After his presentation, Dr. Sara Kennedy, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Northern California, will present her organization’s experience implementing expanded syphilis screening in their clinics to detect and treat syphilis cases to ultimately prevent CS cases in California.
