ACA Pediatrics Council Virtual Pediatric Education Week
The ACA Pediatrics Council had decided to cancel all in person events through the end of the year. With growing case numbers across the US, the Council feels encouraging travel is too risky. We have opted instead to host a virtual pediatric education week! The details of this event are still in development so check back often for updates!
CE’s for the event will applied for through PACE. More information on PACE state eligibility will be published once approved.
