Each year, members of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Ambulatory Pediatric Association, the American Pediatric Society, and the Society for Pediatric Research gather to share significant research results that affect the health of children. This year's meeting (held at the end of April in San Francisco) of what are collectively known as the Pediatric Academic Societies was-as always-a forum for the discussion of a range of pediatric topics. Papers dealt with everything from academic and research skills and bio-informatics to cardiology, developmental pediatrics, epidemiology, bioethics, health services research, hematology-oncology, nephrology, and vulnerable and underserved populations. A sample of what was presented:
