April 2017 Newsletter Article

Regions VII and VIII hosted their annual meeting February 11-13, 2017 in New Orleans during the Southern Regional Societies Meeting.  In addition to original science and clinical case presentations, the meeting included two APA-sponsored workshops.  "Let's Get Social:  Being an Advocate in the Digital World," was presented by Rachel Dawkins (Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital), Lisa Costello (West Virginia University), Elizabeth Meade (Swedish Medical Center), and Jennifer Wolford (University of Pittsburgh), and "Micro to Macro Teaching in the Busy Clinical Setting" was presented by Kim Hoang, Sarah Denniston, and Adam Wolfe (Baylor College of Medicine and the Children's Hospital of San Antonio).  We were very pleased to have Sue Bostwick, APA president-elect, join us during our meeting this year to share an update on current APA activities.  We also enjoyed networking and an update on CORNET by Paul Darden (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center) during our APA breakfast.  Regions VII and VIII gave joint awards for the best case presentations at the Pediatric Clinical Case Symposium.  The following awards were given:

First Place:  Kathleen Richard, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Second Place:  Paul Redmond, University of Mississippi Medical Center
Third Place:  Emily Masoumy, Children's Hospital of Georgia at Augusta

We hope to see you at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting May 6-9, 2017!  If you are making the trip to San Francisco, please plan to join us at your APA Region Breakfast on Monday, May 8 from 7:00-8:00 am in the Marriott Marquis Yerba Buena Salon 13 (Region VII) and 14 (Region VIII).
