Save the date for the upcoming Region II/III meeting which will be held on Friday, March 11, 2016 at the New York University School of Medicine in New York, NY!  

We have an exciting day of events planned.

Our key note speaker will be Dr. Eric Fleegler, MD, MPH, an emergency medicine physician at Boston Children's Hospital and the co-founder of an injury prevention research group studying violence, firearms and legislative interventions to decrease injuries and fatalities. Dr. Fleegler will be speaking to us about gun violence prevention in his presentation entitled "Violence and Medicine; Firearms and Public Health".

We also have three fantastic workshops planned:

2. Clinical workshop entitled: Creating Healthy Smiles for At-Risk Children: How to start (and maintain!) a successful oral health program in your pediatric medical home.

- Katie McPeak, MD, the Medical Director for the Center for the Urban Child at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and an assistant professor of pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine.

- Priya Patel, MD, an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine and a general pediatrician at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, Center for the Urban Child.

3. Educational workshop entitled: Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Skills in Academic Medicine.

We hope many APA members from Region II/III will be able to attend our Regional meeting!
