The 30th Annual PPA Meeting is going virtual (AGAIN!).  Although we will miss being in beautiful Norfolk, VA in the Spring of 2021, we hope to get there soon! The dates of the Annual Meeting will be moving to Wednesday, April 21 to Sunday, April 25, 2021 to be consistent with our traditional Annual Meeting schedule.

The Board of Directors based this decision on many factors. First and foremost, the health and wellbeing of our members and attendees will always be at the forefront of our decision making process. Secondly, we are aware of departmental travel and budget restrictions that many of you face in the wake of the pandemic. PPA has successfully hosted two virtual conferences, and we are confident we will be able to once again provide an excellent continuing education opportunity and meeting experience for our members.

Regardless of the delivery method, we are committed to providing CE and BCPPS recertification sessions in the areas of infectious disease and pediatric intensive care. We will also be conducting a virtual poster session and residency presentations, which have been very well rated during our previous virtual conferences. And like the Fall Conference, we will be adding round table discussions, committee meetings, and social events to the agenda!

Registration information will be posted on the PPA website soon.

We have also re-opened the Call for Education Proposals. You now have until Friday, November 6, 2020 to submit your proposal. Click here.

Thank you for your ongoing support of and contributions to your PPA. Although these are challenging times, we continue to be enthusiastic about our virtual conferences. We look forward to “seeing” you there.
