April 2017 Newsletter Article

Over 120 attendees took part in the annual APA Region II/III meeting on Friday, March 24, 2017!  This joint Region II/III meeting was held at the NYU School of Medicine / NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, NY.  Attendees were welcomed with opening remarks by Arthur Fierman, MD, Director, Division of General Pediatrics at the NYU School of Medicine.  Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, Director of the Pediatric Public Health Initiative at the Hurley Children's Hospital at Hurley Medical Center, and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, gave an inspirational key note address on "The Flint Water Crisis: A Journey for Justice". We were all inspired by her development of an innovative and model public health program to research, monitor and mitigate the impact of lead in Flint's drinking water. Participants were able to choose from three workshops: "Partnering with Parent Navigators: Improving Care and Promoting Community Engaged Research" (led by Susan Feigelman, MD, Lin Perry, MPA, Ann Phillips, Iman Sharif, MD, MPH and Hollyce Tyrrell, MSSW), "Management of Adolescent Depression in Primary Care: Tips and Pearls" (led by Diane Bloomfield, MD, and Ruth E. K. Stein, MD), and "The Whys and Hows to Address Burnout" (led by Michael J Beck, MD, FAAP, SSGB and Chris O'Hara, MD).  There were 32 posters on display during the poster session.  The lunchtime networking session was led by a group of 10 esteemed mentors, including Michael Beck, MD, Susan Bostwick, MD, MBA, Esther Chung MD, MPH, Arthur Fierman, MD, Alan Mendelsohn, MD, Suzette Oyeku, MD, MPH, Lee Pachter, DO, Ian Paul, MD, MSc, Iman Sharif, MD, MS, MPH, and Steven Shelov, MD, with topics at tables spanning advocacy, medical education, and funding opportunities for early stage investigators.  At the Business meeting, Susan Bostwick, MD, MBA, APA President-elect, gave a brief update and overview about what is going on in the APA.  The day concluded with a platform session composed of 8 outstanding presentations.   

We are looking forward to seeing Region II members at the upcoming PAS meeting in San Francisco! Our APA Region II breakfast will be held Monday, May 8th from 7-8 am in Yerba Buena Salon 2 at the Marriott Marquis.
