Each spring, pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, residents and allied health professionals are invited to attend the Annual Riley Children’s Health Pediatric Conference. This two-day virtual conference is an opportunity for primary care providers from across Indiana and the surrounding states to discuss hot topics related to children’s healthcare. Hosted by the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and Riley Children’s Health, the conference is a continuing medical education and networking opportunity for clinicians of various backgrounds.
Intended for lifelong learners, the conference allows participants the opportunity to actively engage and explore many topics commonly heard among their communities.
Speakers at the conference include IU School of Medicine and Riley Children’s Health specialists from several different pediatric specialties and some nationally ranked pediatric specialties including cardiology,neurology, neonatology, and gastroenterology. Presenting on a variety of topics from preventing heart disease in children to best practices in pediatric anxiety and depression to treating childhood obesity, each speaker aims to provide learners evidence-based diagnostic and management tools pertinent to their pediatric practice.
This year, the virtual conference is May 11-12 and is held live via Zoom.
