This annual conference is hosted by Children’s Minnesota, the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics, and MNAAP.
The 2023 hybrid conference will offer attendees the option to select if they would like to attend in-person or virtually. Attendees will select their option when they register. There will be limited in-person availability.
Keynote speakers include:
- Emma Benoit is a suicide attempt survivor on a mission to use her painful experience to help others find hope, and shine more light on the fact that 20 young people die every day by suicide in the United States. Her documentary film chronicles her recovery journey and advocacy work while addressing the youth suicide epidemic.
- Roy Guerrero, MD, FAAP, was the only pediatrician in Uvalde, Texas, when a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School ended the lives of 19 children and two teachers and wounded 17 others. He was called to the hospital to assist in the aftermath and offers a gripping account of his experience in his presentation, “Uvalde: Before, During and After.”
