Attend Annual Meeting for Free! Two opportunities for Free Annual Meeting Registration

This year’s Annual Meeting on September 27-28 is set to be one of the best meetings you’ll attend this year. In addition to an array of great topics, Mona Hanna-Attisha will be presenting the keynote address about her experiences as a Flint, MI pediatrician and exposing the Flint water crisis.

You can attend for FREE this year by applying to one of our two Ohio AAP programs. Both opportunities close at the end of the month!

Shark Tank
The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics will host two opportunities to share your ideas and projects with Annual Meeting attendees.

  • On Friday, present your work at Posters and Pinot: Wine, Cheese, and Poster Reception.
  • On Saturday morning, you will jump into the Shark Tank. Inspired by the popular TV show, Ohio AAP invites participants into the Shark Tank to present an idea that will improve Pediatric Practice and/or Child Health.

The winners will also have the option to further promote their work with one of the following:

  • One-page feature about the project/poster in the Ohio Pediatrics newsletter
  • Webinar hosted by the Chapter for the winner to present their project/poster to the membership
