As a pilot test of broad themes of interest across academic pediatrics, PAS especially welcomes submissions related to our Highlighted Themes. We also encourage creativity as you build your session agendas. A 90-minute session agenda for a submission related to a Highlighted Theme may, for example, feature short presentations, followed by a pro/con debate, followed by time for small group discussion among session participants. When you submit, you will have the opportunity to indicate if your submission aligns with a PAS 2022 Highlighted Theme.

  • Effects of Climate Change on Child Health
  • Racism in Research and Medical Care
  • Managing the Pediatric Mental Health Crisis

Sessions selected for the PAS 2022 Highlighted Themes will be scheduled to facilitate continuity of discussion and exploration.  A sample schedule is provided below for illustrative purposes only.
