Description
The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Annual Meeting is the largest international meeting that focuses on research in child health. We are bringing together all of these groups to not only discuss original research, which has been the hallmark of the PAS meeting, but also to 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.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.

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
