Region 4 Meeting
February 22 and 23, 2014
The 2013 Region IV APA Meeting website is now open for registration and submission of abstracts for presentation at the meeting at: www.degnon.org/secure/apa/region4meeting.
Highlights of the 2014 meeting line up:
Day 1 Keynote Speaker: David Keller, MD, President of the APA
Day 2 Keynote Speaker: Bob Hall, JD, MPAFF, Associated Director, AAP Dept. of Federal Affairs. Potential Impacts of the Affordable Care Act on Pediatric Healthcare
Original research and advocacy presentations: Open to all but especially good for junior faculty, fellows and residents. Practicing for PAS is fine and "works-in-progress" can also be submitted. Submission deadline: Abstracts received online (www.degnon.org/secure/apa/region4meeting) by December 11, 2013 will have the highest consideration for platform presentation. Abstract submission guidelines are available on the registration website. You do not need to register to submit an abstract; however, all presenters will eventually need to register to attend the meeting.
Time for Special Interest Group (SIG)-based working group/workshops: We received enthusiastic feedback from our SIG meetings last year, so we've decided to expand to 2 sessions this year to allow for participation in multiple group meetings. This is a chance to network and share innovative ideas and suggestions on topics that matter to you. On the registration form we ask you to select the top three APA special interest groups you might be interested in participating in. We will offer a selection of the top-ranked SIGs at the meeting.
Breakfast with the Professors: Great opportunity for informal mentoring on a variety of topics important to consider early on in an academic pediatric career.
Housing and registration details:
Register online at www.degnon.org/secure/apa/region4meeting. Early meeting registration ends February 17, 2014 (for faculty and spouses/other guests), so don't procrastinate! Note: spouses and other guests are welcome to listen to the meeting without registering. However, we ask that anyone who will partake in any of the meals register to cover food costs.
