Welcome!

June 2024

June 1st marks the unofficial beginning of summer and we wish all our members and their staff and their families a very enjoyable one which hopefully includes some well-earned R & R of the kind only summer seems to provide.  We know all of you joined with us on Memorial Day to remember the service members who have given their lives in defending our country—and these include many of our members who have served in the military.  June 6, the 80th anniversary of D-Day this year, underscores the profound sacrifice that millions have made for our great nation.

We hope we’ll see many of you in a few weeks at Pediatrics By the Sea, our popular summer CME conference on June 12-15, 2024 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Amelia Island, Fla.  This year’s program chair is Edward Clark, MD, FAAP, chair of pediatrics at Mercer-Macon and the Olson Children’s Hospital in Macon. Our national faculty include David Schonfeld, MD, Los Angeles; (behavioral pediatrics); Rachel Caskey, MD, Chicago (Infectious Disease); Linda Parsi, MD, Houston (Coding & practice management); Robert Voigt, MD, Little Rock (Developmental pediatrics) and  Lynn Davidson, MD, New York City, (developmental pediatrics).

Speaking of events, the Georgia AAP regularly produces webinars, EPIC ® programs, and ECHO® programs for our your benefit—and they are always free to our members. Two this summer are worth noting now:  on August 20th, we’ll have a webinar on RSV Immunization: Preparing for the New Season, featuring Christina Rostad, MD, chair of our Chapter ID Committee. This will be 12:30-1:30pm.  And the following Saturday, August 24, we’ll host the Georgia Firearm Injury Prevention Symposium (virtual).

 

Finally, looking into the Fall, Pediatrics on the Parkway will be held October 24-26, at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Judson Miller, MD, Emory University is this year’s program chair. And then on that Saturday night we’ll have our big celebration with a Gala marking the 70th anniversary of the Georgia Chapter.  This will be held at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel, which adjoins the Cobb Galleria Centre.  Be sure and mark your calendar now for that one.  Visit our calendar page for a list of all our upcoming events—both live and virtual.
