As clinicians, we're encouraged by even small steps towards progress, and amazed at future possibilities.
To better reflect these concepts, we have developed an exciting new name for the conference! We would like to invite you to join us at the 29th Annual Fetus & Newborn: Improving Outcomes in Perinatal and Neonatal Care. We will continue to address the wide-ranging challenges encountered by the perinatal and neonatal teams caring for these fragile patients and their families, and work towards improved outcomes—the ultimate goal of what we do.
Bring your questions and puzzling cases! Join in conversations with your fellow conference attendees and our stellar faculty members to problem-solve and hear fresh perspectives on issues you and your teams are hoping to resolve.
Mark your calendar, invite a colleague to join you, and plan on an energizing learning experience. See you in Washington, DC!Conference Objectives
