Natasha Sriraman, MD, general academic pediatrician, discusses the American Academy of Pediatrics conference that took place from October 7, 2022, to October 11, 2022.
In this interview, Natasha Sriraman, MD, general academic pediatrician, outlines noteworthy sessions and takeaways from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) conference that took place from October 7, 2022, to October 11, 2022.
This was the first AAP conference since 2019, creating an air of excitement as participants attended in person after 3 years.
Sriraman discussed looking forward to sessions on technology, where she could learn how to use technology as a physician to reach more patients and families. On Sunday, she spoke about breastfeeding and refugee health at the conference.
She was also interested in topics on gender and race disparities. Sessions on mental health within pediatrics were important to her, as they would directly correlate with her work.
"If I leave every lecture with 1 to 3 takeaways, that's a success," Sriraman said. She believes this conference will give her practical knowledge to put back into her in-person or telehealth practice.
