      Dr. Christina Muzny obtained her medical degree at the Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center College of Medicine. She subsequently completed an internal medicine residency and an infectious diseases fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center prior to joining the infectious diseases faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 2010. Her clinical and research interests focus on HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (specifically vaginal infections) among sexual minority women of color and women with increased numbers of recent sexual partners. Dr. Muzny currently has a K23 career development award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to study the pathogenesis of bacterial vaginosis among African American women who have sex with women.

    Abstract:

    DATE: October 29, 2019
    TIME: 09:00am PDT

    Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma genitalium are common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) yet are not as well studied or understood as gonorrhea or chlamydia. In addition, many persons with these infections are asymptomatic. This presentation will provide a broad overview of these two STIs, including updates on their epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment in the U.S. Bring your “tricky trich” and M. genitalium questions for the Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Explain populations at risk for T. vaginalis and M. genitalium
    • Recognize common clinical presentations of T. vaginalis and M. genitalium
    • Review current diagnostic methods for these STIs, including highly sensitive nucleic acid amplification tests
    • Explain recommended treatment regimens, including the role of antibiotic resistance

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
