Overview
Description

After a brief hiatus, Pediatric Trends has returned with the goal to fulfill the need in the practicing pediatric community to increase and improve competence in the field of pediatric medicine and to integrate best practices based on evidence-based medicine and current research. Topics are geared towards pediatricians, family practitioners, PAs, pediatric nurse practitioners, and other allied health professionals interested in the care of infants, children, and adolescents in biomedical and behavioral sciences.

Who Should Attend
This activity is intended for pediatricians, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, PAs, pediatric subspecialists, pediatric residents, pediatric subspecialty fellows, family practitioners, and other allied health professionals interested in the care of infants, children and adolescents.
