Published Thursday, May 31, 2018

I & O Medical Centers would like to thank everyone who was able to come out and celebrate our 30th Anniversary Spring Seminar! It is such a pleasure to serve each and every company that we have been able to build such a great lasting relationship with. We had some wonderful speakers come to the event delivering information pertinent to the healthcare field ranging from Workers Compensation to Therapeutic Botox. If you were unable to attend, here is a recap below.

Denise Kulick, RN, MS, MBA, CCM is the current Nurse Case Manager for Results Case management. Denise highlighted her role as a Case Manager (CM), the job process, and how it directly correlates to Workers Compensation. Her presentation is embedded below.

Diane Abshire, representing Allergen, discussed both therapeutic Botox and cosmetic Botox. She highlighted the differences in treatment, medical filing for insurance purposes and the origin of Botox.

Dr. Saunora Prom, DO, CAQSM represented Tidewater Physician Multispecialty Group. Dr. Prom delivered a detailed approach on how to handle heat exhaustion on the job and emphasized incidence / prevalence, risk factors, and treatments within the Industrial field. His presentation is embedded below.

Joe DiNardo, toxicologist, discussed the impact of chemical sunscreens on the environment. DiNardo primarily works within the Maui and Honolulu region for his research and touched on the sources of oxybenzone/octinoxate; specifically relating to the chemicals' direct effect on cancers, pediatric toxicities, and environmental toxicities. His presentation is embedded below.

Dr. N. Michael Baddar, MP, MS, MPH is Medical Director and Owner of I & O Medical Centers. Dr. Baddar touched on both Diane Abshire's and Joe DiNardo’s topics, delving deeper into a medical perspective. Therapeutic Botox can have a great impact on the major opioid epidemic that has spread nationwide, turning patients to a more natural approach for pain. The product development of oxybenzone is also a topic near and dear to Dr. Baddar’s heart. Additionally, he highlighted the importance of Independent Medical Examinations and his experience on performing this exam for over 30 years.
