A New Approach

More of what you want,
less of what you don't.

When we decided to put on a new statewide pediatric CME conference, we were committed to making it the best experience available. 

Listening to feedback from our members, we've designed each talk to be shorter, more interactive, and more focused on information you can utilize in your everyday practice. The goal is to give our attendees a chance to meaningfully interact with conference faculty and get the real-world tips and tricks they need.

The all-star roster of speakers we've put together from across the state and country have the expertise needed to guide you through new and emerging issues in pediatrics. 

We've also stripped away common conference staples you might be used to seeing. Instead of an exhibit hall, we've set up break rooms to utilize throughout the day. With delicious snacks at the ready, we hope these areas will let you relax, connect with other attendees, or check a few emails.
