“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Those words by Walt Disney describe the spirit of the American Academy of Pediatrics. And this fall, we’ll be making a little magic of our own at the 2013 AAP National Conference & Exhibition in Orlando.

Whether you’re a primary care provider, subspecialty care provider, resident pediatrician or academician, this is the conference you won’t want to miss. Neither will your family, as we’re offering “fantasmic” activities and ticket packages to DisneyWorld® and other area theme parks and attractions.

As the world’s largest pediatrics-focused medical education event and technical exhibition, the AAP Experience offers unparalleled opportunities to network with colleagues and hear from those at the forefront of pediatric care.

We begin on October 25 with our pre-conference PEDS21 symposium: Early Brain and Child Development: Building Brains, Forging Futures, which will cover how to translate new advances in basic developmental science into your practice. And we’ll continue over the next four days with a special track on early brain development and epigenetics as well as nearly 60 other sessions covering the latest advances and best practices in pediatric care.

Join the debate about the latest pediatric controversies at our new daily pointcounterpoint sessions, and enjoy the exhibits, which will include free book signings, demonstrations and more!

I look forward to seeing you and your family at “The Most Magical Place on Earth” as we learn, laugh and help make our dreams of attaining optimal health and well-being for all children come true.

(2012-2013 President)
