About the Conference: The SW VA Pediatrics Conference provides a format for ongoing education on regionally pertinent pediatric issues, as well as dissemination on new or updated practice guidelines, for rural-based primary care pediatricians so that they can stay current and competent on the latest pediatric practice guidelines and trends.
The conference has a history of providing the participants with a plethora of knowledge on various topics. Each year health care providers receive updated information that they can apply to their daily practice. It also provides some learners with the opportunity to obtain educational information required for professional re-certifications.
