About the Conference: The 2nd Tennessee Annual Pediatric Summit is the result of the collaboration between LeBonheur Children's Hospital, the Division of Family Health and Wellness of the Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (TNAAP). The conference has two emphases. First, it will provide relevant clinical information on pediatric topics by leading, local physician faculty in an atmosphere that encourages participant interaction. Second, it provides a Tennessee pediatric forum to share recent trends in state administrative policies, build synergy around state medical initiatives and encourage dialogue between state leaders and providers. The program will include didactic and interactive clinical sessions with local experts and a policy forum with representatives from various levels and areas of state government.
