Professional Education Committee

The Professional Education Committee is charged with providing and vetting outstanding professional education to the membership of NASPGHAN including non-physicians members. To this end, the Committee designs, organizes, and conducts the Postgraduate Course that is part of the annual NASPGHAN meeting. We are involved with sessions held at multiple other national and international society meetings such as DDW and PAS with our responsibilities including creation of session topics, inviting speakers, and moderating. We also function in the role of CME content editors for multiple NASPGHAN Foundation educational offerings such as webinars, podcasts, handouts and even conferences such as the N2U meeting.
