We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak in Georgia and the US and as a Chapter are making adjustments to ensure the safety of our members, partners, staff and community at large. We are committed to following all recommendations from the CDC and state and local public health departments and will be modifying and postponing events as necessary.

The Fall CME Meeting has been converted to a virtual format. Pediatrics on the Virtual Parkway: Halloween Edition is Saturday, October 31st – Sunday, November 1st. Please click here for more information and to register!

The Jim Soapes Charity Golf Classic, the primary fund-raiser for the Pediatric Foundation of Georgia, will be postponed to next April. The tourney is usually held in April, and we had moved this year’s version to October 21 in hopes that we’d be able to play then. But alas, conditions simply don’t allow it. We’ll see where things stand next spring. Thank you for your support of the Foundation in the meantime.
