Post-Thanksgiving Happenings and Events

As you're recovering from Thanksgiving, here are just a few reminders about some events this week.

Today marks the beginning of the 6th Annual International Pediatric Orthopedic Symposium, presented by Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons at the Hilton, Walt Disney World Resort, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Course information can be viewed here.

The American Epilepsy Society’s 63rd Annual Meeting will commence on Friday, December 4th at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. There will be a briefing in pediatrics on December 6th at 2:00 pm ET that is currently scheduled to cover three reports, and I’ll be watching for news generated from that. If you’re interested, AES allows you to search through abstracts online.

Also on December 4th, Northeastern and Ohio Universities and Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy will be hosting the 27th Annual Infectious Disease Seminar for the Practicing Physician at the Edgewater Beach Hotel and Spa in Naples, Florida. That’s the second warm place you can spend collecting CEUs during the first week in December, folks. You can find contact information for the conference on the Infectious Diseases Society of America website.

The latter continuing ed activity is timely, if you’ve been reading the news.

And this blog is posted one day after World AIDS Day, although I’m sure you can still access Google’s list of organizations that exist to help. Too many children are suffering with AIDS; too many children are orphaned by AIDS.
