Upcoming Events​​

American Academy of Pediatrics 2019 National Conference
Date: October 25-29, 2019
Location: New Orleans, LA
The AAP 2019 National Conference registration opens April 24, 2019. Below are details about sessions and events that focus on disaster medicine:

Title: Schools and Disasters: Where to Begin, Where to End?
Faculty: Edward Clarke; Linda Grant; David Schonfeld, MD, FAAP; Dean Schreiber
Time: Saturday, October 26 from 8:00am-4:45pm
Description: Schools and Disasters: Where to Begin, Where to End
School disasters are increasingly frequent. Many pediatricians are ill equipped to address the preparedness for potential events. Pediatricians are likely to be asked to participate in treatment, either emergent or follow up, for the children in schools effected by a disaster. This session will inform the attendees on these issues.

Title: Disaster Preparedness for the PEM Physician
Faculty: Steve Krug, MD, FAAP; Kevin Haggerty, MD, FAAP; Renee Jarvis, MD, FAAP; Jonathan Martin
Time: Saturday, October 26 from 2:15pm-6:15pm
Description: Gun Violence, Mental Health and Advocacy: Where does the Trauma System Fit?
The Sections on Surgery and Emergency Medicine have teamed up to deliver a transformational session on gun violence in children, its many facets including the relationship to mental health and how we can advocate for change at the local, state and national levels of government.

Title: Katrina to Maria: Leveraging Lessons about Hurricane Recovery to Promote Resiliency and Protect Children
Faculty: Brent Kaziny, MD, FAAP; Roberta Carona Vicari, MD, FAAP
Time: Sunday, October 27 from 8:30am-10:00am
Description: Pediatric clinicians recognize that they need to learn more about disaster planning and recovery. Pediatricians have a valuable role to play in advocating for childrens needs in a disaster, and a review of hurricane responses (Katrina through Maria) can help make a case for pediatric preparedness and response strategies. Through case examples and sharing of stories and lessons learned during hurricanes, members will become more aware of the critical roles they can play to protect children in disaster response and recovery.

Title: Emergency Preparedness and Recovery from Disasters in Children Birth to 5 years of Age: What Every Pediatrician Should Know
Faculty: Georgina Peacock, MD, MPH, FAAP
Time: Sunday, October 27 from 1:00pm-6:00pm
Description: Attendees will learn about best practices and resources for pediatric practices regarding disaster preparedness and recovery, including mental health, in the early childhood population. Participants will learn how to engage early learning centers (child care programs and preschools) for disaster preparedness and recovery efforts and support of families requiring child care.

Title: Critical Care During a Disaster
Faculty: Sarita Chung, MD, FAAP; Carl Eriksson, MD, FAAP; Aaron Gardner, MD, FAAP; Mitchell Hamele; Steven Krug, MD, FAAP
Time: Monday, October 28 from 1:00pm-5:00pm
