*** A message from the Conference Chair:
I am writing to inform you that the the APLS course on May 7th and the Annual Pediatric Emergency Medicine Conference on May 8-9th will unfortunately be cancelled due to restrictions caused by the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you are frontline health care providers and your personal and professional priorities have shifted drastically over the last few weeks. I realize that our collective focus in the upcoming weeks will be on managing this evolving global crisis. We will let you know if we can hold this course and conference in the Fall.
Dr. Navid Dehghani, Conference Chair
