Future of Pediatrics is an annual summer CME Program for community-based primary care pediatricians and specialists and is hosted by the Pediatric Health Network. The program includes two full days of CME presentations targeted at improving the care provided by practicing pediatricians. The conference is usually aligned with the Children’s National Annual Medical Staff dinner – bringing our community pediatricians and Children’s National Hospital specialists together for an evening.

In 2022, we brought back our annual free summer CME Program for community-based primary care pediatricians and specialists. This year, the Pediatric Health Network hosted a one-day CME event, both in-person and online (hybrid) on Thursday, June 23rd. For those who attended, please remember to claim CME credit.

Please see lower down on this page to view all materials, presentation slides, and recordings. We look forward to seeing you at next summer’s Future of Pediatrics 2023!
