In light of COVID-19 and the state mandates being employed to decrease the spread and impact of this disease on individuals, communities, and our health system, the Georgia Pediatric Nurses Association and Georgia Pediatric Practice Managers Association Spring 2020 Meeting, scheduled for May 15, 2020 at the Macon Marriott City Center, has been postponed until the Fall.  We appreciate all of the feedback and comments provided regarding this meeting and feel it is best to postpone while pediatric practices are facing the challenges of the pandemic.

We are placing the Spring agenda on hold and will use it as a point for consideration in drafting the Fall meeting, tentatively to be scheduled in November in the Atlanta area. Please remember to cancel hotel reservations for the Macon Marriott. The GPNA/GPPMA planning committees will be  meeting this Summer to begin the planning process for Fall. If you have suggestions, your input to the committee would be greatly appreciated in preparing an informative and enlightening event.

Let us know if you have any questions or need any additional information. Stay safe and healthy during this time of crisis as we all do our part to combat COVID-19. If the Georgia AAP can assist you and your practice in any other way during this difficult time, please contact us.
