    Abstract

    Following attendance of this virtual event, participants should appreciate the changing epidemiology of trichomoniasis and clinician ordering patterns on the basis of improved laboratory diagnostics.  In addition, participants should be able to characterize the distribution of Mycoplasma genitalium infection in women and men on the basis of a new diagnostic option.  Finally, attendees will be able to describe the evolution of molecular screening for human papillomavirus and application to cervical cytology.

    Learning Objectives:
    I.Appreciate the changing epidemiology of trichomoniasis and clinician ordering patterns on the basis of improved laboratory diagnostics
    II.Characterize the distribution of Mycoplasma genitalium infection in women and men on the basis of a new diagnostic option
    III.Describe the evolution of molecular screening for human papillomavirus and application to cervical cytology
