Our second annual Hot Topics in Pediatrics conference, held July 27–30, 2016 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in the Walt Disney World® Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, will feature national leaders in the field of pediatrics discussing some of the hottest and most controversial topics for providers caring for children, with a focus on the primary care setting. From controversies to hands-on educational offerings, Hot Topics in Pediatrics will help you to stay current with the important issues of our times and implement strategies for practice change.
Topics including sleep issues, chronic fatigue, genomics, screenings, allergy, food sensitivities, constipation, screening for STIs, (and many more), will be featured in brief (20-30) minute presentations by a topic expert, with plenty of time for one-to-one discussion with speakers, and a whole day of case-based teaching and learning.
