55th PPS Annual ConventionApril 8 - 11, 2018 @ Philippine International Convention Center
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to the 55th Annual Convention of the Philippine Pediatric Society to be held on April 8-11, 2018 with the theme “The N.E.E.D. to Change: New, Evolving, Emerging Directions in Pediatrics”.
The Scientific Program Committee has meticulously prepared very relevant topics that all of us involved in the management of pediatric illnesses, can learn from. The topics will include new and emerging children’s diseases as well as visit old ones which may present challenges in diagnosis and management. We have also invited noted speakers who will share with us their expertise and experiences in the different pediatric disciplines.
The Organizing Committee hopes to see you during next year’s annual convention. Let us continue to enjoy the camaraderie among our peers while updating ourselves with current developments in the field of Pediatrics.
Hope to see you there!
