The editor-in-chief of Contemporary Pediatrics® shares her enthusiasm about heading out to Anaheim, California, for the first live American Academy of Pediatrics Conference since 2019.
The American Academy of Pediatrics conference, the “Super Bowl” of medical conferences for all things related to children and adolescent health, is going live again, for the first time since 2019 (when it was held in New Orleans, Louisiana). The agenda is chockful of a dazzling array of sessions, product theaters, workshops, and an exhibit hall on virtually every pediatric topic under the sun. Topics range, but are not limited to, sessions and lectures on LGBT health and wellness; oral health; obesity and nutrition; neurology; pediatric trainees; osteopathic pediatricians, and so much more.
Some of the most engaging topics include:
“Building Pediatric Capacity to Address Food Insecurity”
“Common Problems in the Newborn Nursery”
“Seizures and Seizure Mimics”
“Essential Advice for Food Introduction and Allergy Prevention”
“Let’s Talk: Practical Approach to Delivering Difficult News”
“Birthmarks: Red, White, Blue, and Brown”
“ Untold Stories: American Indians and Tobacco in the US”
“Feeling the Burn: Physician Burnout and Resiliency”
“Published Stories That Could Change the Way You Practice”
“Up in Smoke: Unintended Consequences of Marijuana Legalization”
An AAP Resource Center exhibition allows attendees to meet with authors of AAP-published books, share ideas with members of the AAP publishing staff, visit a board-certified internist from the Section on Med-Peds for a personal preventive service consultation and see the hottest products and gadgets from Global Child Health and Life Support. Additionally, AAP leaders and staff will be on hand to answer questions about AAP products, services, and programs and discuss how you can become more involved at the Academy.
There will be more on hand as well, including, on Friday, the AAP President’s Welcome Reception and AAP Block Party, and on Sunday, a Lunchtime Laughs and Learning with the Pediatrics On Call Podcast as well as a Trivia Night.
In this brief interview, the editor-in-chief of Contemporary Pediatrics, Tina Q, Tan, MD,FAAP, FIDSA, FPIDS, shares her enthusiasm about this important conference going live once again and what she is most looking forward to.
