Course description: The 2015 Mitochondrial Disease Clinical Conference will offer physicians and specialists who are not mitochondrial experts an opportunity to understand more about identifying mitochondrial diseases, managing adults and children with mitochondrial disorders, and assisting patients with treatment options and coordinated care.  Expert faculty will engage participants and provide the most clinically relevant information with the intention of helping to educate healthcare providers about specific strategies for helping the mitochondrial disease patient.
