The American College of Osteopathic Pediatric Track at OMED 2016 will take place this year in beautiful Anaheim, California on September 17-20. The theme of this year’s conference is Screening. The CME committee has lined up an amazing group of speakers who will cover a wide ranging list of topics, all central to the theme of Screening. The topics include: updates in pediatric ultrasound, screening for and the effects of adverse childhood events, ADHD update, evaluation and management of pediatric depression and anxiety, assessing and working with children with learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, emergent conditions in outpatient settings, and hands-on workshops on concussion evaluation and management, as well as osteopathic considerations for the pediatric GI patient. The conference also includes a neonatal/perinatal day with some wonderful and timely topics given by nationally renowned speakers in the fields of molecular trends in genetics and clinical applications, supporting exclusive breastfeeding in the early postpartum period, and advancements in non-invasive ventilation.
ACOP will be partnering with the American Academy of Osteopathy and the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians for dynamic interactive sessions involving hands-on osteopathic manipulative training and practice, and education on dating and teen violence respectively. The location offers a number of exciting opportunities outside of the conference. From exploring Disneyland and related theme parks, to relaxing on the beautiful Southern California beaches, to touring Hollywood, to hiking up to see the gorgeous views of the canyons, there is no lack for extracurricular activity.
We are thrilled to again offer our user-friendly mobile conference guide for this conference. We look forward to seeing you in magical Anaheim and hope that you have a magnificent time expanding your pediatric repertoire and engaging in meaningful discussions with your colleagues.
