About this Event

     This program, conducted over two days, will be of interest to general pediatricians who are interested in expanding their knowledge in a variety of subspecialty areas with new or updated guidelines or practice parameters that impact primary pediatric care.  In particular, healthcare providers who do not feel comfortable in recognizing or managing patients with the above conditions will benefit from this conference.

     The subspecialty topics covered in the conference deal with conditions that generally involve a team approach for patient care, including the primary care physician and the subspecialist.  The conference will provide the primary care physician with practical information that will help them to become more knowledgeable in identifying, understanding, and co-managing a variety of complex conditions along with the subspecialist.  The conference will also provide an opportunity for the primary care physicians to ask questions directly to the participating subspecialists to further enhance their understanding of the conditions discussed.  The combination of didactic and interactive elements will promote a more effective learning experience.
