PAS Overview

The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Annual Meeting is the largest international meeting focused on research in child health. We bring together a variety of groups to—not only discuss original research, which has been the hallmark of the PAS meeting, but to also discuss how this research can be applied to actual clinical practice in pediatrics. This alliance also provides opportunity to discuss other critical issues that affect child health such as public policy and advocacy.

Approximately 2800 scientific presentations are selected each year. Our program includes independent society specific programming and joint programming in areas of mutual interest between the APS, SPR, APA, AAP and other affiliate societies. This meeting is providing an excellent opportunity to celebrate the past and future of the pediatric discipline in this millennium.
