The theme this spring will be Social Determinants of Health in Pediatrics. The conference will begin on Thursday with a pre-conference special session (separate registration required) on Allergy and Immunology including oral, sublingual, and subcutaneous immunotherapy.
Friday we will delve into adoptive and foster care health, not only dealing with their special needs, but also the issues of separation. We will also find out how adult drug use affects children. The general session ends with OMM for the abused child.
Saturday brings discussions on opioid addiction and its impact on children and adolescents. We follow with OMM for Adolescents, Bright Futures adolescent well exam and screenings, OMM for chronic pain and what to look for in vaccine preventable diseases. We will also offer an optional OMT Workshop (separate registration required) on Saturday afternoon. The three-hour workshop will cover cranial OMT for autism and OMT for Genitourinary (GU) Tract Disorders.
On Sunday, we will tackle pediatric palliative care, HIV in adolescents, and homelessness. The program closes with a talk on physicians’ responsibilities to society.
We will also have a moderated poster session and committee meetings for all who are interested. You will definitely not want to miss the 2019 James M Watson Memorial Lecture given by Stanley E. Grogg, DO, FACOP.
ACOP proudly invites residents, interns and students to attend and meet up with their future colleagues as well as absorb updated information. We look forward to seeing everyone in Pittsburgh and hope you have a fantastic time seeing old friends and making new ones.
“When I was very young, most of my heroes wore capes, flew through the air or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me” -- Mister Rogers
