Dear PHN members,

We are excited to announce that our annual Business of Pediatrics CME conference will take place virtually on December 7, 2021.  Read on in our newsletter for more details. Although we are unable to gather in person again this year, we are ensuring our program includes plenty of time for online interaction and engagement.

Also, check out other important upcoming virtual events, The Increasing Incidence of Type 2 Diabetes: Current Trends, Screening and Referral, and Autism: a PCP’s guide to screening, diagnosis and the path to intervention, as well as an upcoming Advancing Asthma Care event on October 26.  We look forward to your participation.

This month’s newsletter also contains information on Merck’s HPV program for your practice and Myopericarditis Evaluation Post COVID-19 vaccine information.

And finally, our PHN Medical Director and Board Member Sandy Chung, M.D., has been voted AAP president-elect. Congratulations, Sandy! We know she will take on this role with compassionate and thoughtful leadership and advocacy for children and pediatricians.


Mark Weissman, M.D.
