57th Annual Teaching Conference
Pediatrics for the Practitioner
(This event has been canceled)

  • Course Description

Dear Colleagues,

We've intentionally delayed contacting you as we held onto the slim hope that we might still hold the annual Pediatrics for the Practitioner conference this year in June in San Antonio, Texas.

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, however, it has become increasingly clear that we needed to make a decision. Yet there remains much uncertainty as to whether folks would feel comfortable, in two months' time, with the total relaxation of social distancing measures that a large meeting such as this would entail. Our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of colleagues, exhibitors, faculty, other stakeholders, and staff.

We thus feel it best to cancel our plans to hold the Annual Pediatrics for the Practitioner Conference in 2020. We very much look forward to resuming this great meeting in 2021.

We realize that some of you may not yet be able to commit to attending in 2021. If that's the case, we'd certainly understand, but we will contact you sometime in the late summer or early fall as we begin to plan for 2021. We appreciate your patience.

Thank you for your support of the Pediatrics for the Practitioner.

Warm Regards & Stay Safe,
