Special Town Halls

Pediatric Health Network is collaborating with experts at Children’s National and across the region to bring you COVID-related information to use in your daily practice during the pandemic. We are a learning community, now more than ever. These sessions provide an opportunity to hear from the experts but also to exchange information with each other. If you have cases you would like to bring for discussion, please contact us at phn@childrensnational.org.
