American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) (Our symposium will be held after conference activities Sunday evening)
National Conference & Exhibition
Sunday, October 25, 2015| 7 to 9:35 p.m.
Marriott Marquis, Marquis Room 1-3

Course Description

The purpose of this symposium is to address recent pediatric innovations, including those specific to C. Difficile (gastroenterology), ACL (orthopedics) and autism (neurology).

The practice of general pediatrics requires a large knowledge base covering many areas of practice, and keeping up-to-date is a challenge. Using yearly course evaluations and guidance from AAP recent data and publications, we address three dynamic topic areas most essential to pediatricians. 

*This symposium is neither sponsored nor endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
