National Conference on Pediatric Care Management
 with a Special Focus on Social Determinants of Health

How will new population-centered care models affect pediatric care? Under the new systems, opportunities exist to work more holistically with patients and their families, paying more attention to their economic realities to help ensure better outcomes. The social determinants of health concept is finally gaining traction and funding. At this conference we’ll explore emerging best practices along these lines. We’ll also look at other areas of care innovation in pediatrics taught by leaders from children’s hospitals around the country. We’ll feature sessions aimed at caregiver burnout and resilience. 

Join us on lovely Cape Cod at our very affordably priced beachfront hotel for a few days of high-quality learning and rejuvenation in a relaxed setting. You’ll leave refreshed and energized to get back to the important work you do with pediatric populations.
