Teaching and Tomorrow 2013
We are pleased to announce the 13th Pediatric GI Teaching and Tomorrow Program of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN). Our goal is to attract the best and brightest residents to subspecialty training in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. In order to accomplish this goal, we have created the Teaching and Tomorrow Program. This program brings pediatric residents from North America to our annual NASPGHAN Meeting to see first-hand the cutting edge basic and clinical science of our subspecialty. This year, the conference will take place October 10 - 12 in Chicago. During this period we will also meet with these residents, to share our enthusiasm for pediatric gastroenterology hepatology and nutrition and to offer career guidance.
