Conferences & Annual Meeting
Join us May 3, 2019 for MNAAP’s Hot Topics in Pediatrics Conference and Annual Meeting
MNAAP’s annual conference draws speakers and attendees from clinics, hospitals and health systems across the state. We encourage you or at least one representative from your practice or organization to attend! This is a great opportunity to network and learn from local pediatric experts about many hot-button issues. Additionally, meet the chapter’s Distinguished Service and Child Advocacy Award, recipients. Join for part or all of the day as your schedule allows.
Registration is now open. (Agenda listed below.)
Following the conference, join us for Eighth Annual Resident and Medical Student Abstract and Poster Competition. The goal of the abstracts competition is to foster community among pediatric trainees across the state and provide another opportunity for resident and medical student scholarship in a supportive and enjoyable environment.
Abstracts will be accepted in two categories:
Case/Program Report (clinical vignette/program report), or
Original Research with a separate category of medical students submitting either of these categories.
Winning abstracts will receive a $200 cash prize and be published in a statewide publication. Three winners will be identified – one for each group: Case/Program report (clinical vignette/program report), Original Research, and Medical Student. Authors selected for the poster session on May 3, 2019, will need to present their abstract/poster from 5-6 p.m. to be judged by a group of Minnesota pediatricians at the annual meeting.
Abstracts should number no more than 450 words and must be submitted electronically at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019abstracts
The deadline is April 19, 2019. You will be notified by email by April 24 if your work is accepted for presentation.
