Our pre-conference seminars this year are on Coding & Practice Management, Current Topics in Pediatric GI, Hospital Medicine, and Behavioral & Mental Health.

Our annual awards luncheon will be held Friday, November 18, where we’ll tip our hats and say thanks to some very special individuals who have performed outstanding service on behalf of Georgia’s children and the Georgia Chapter.  This year’s award recipients are:
