The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) connects thousands of pediatricians and other health care providers united by a common mission: to improve the health and well-being of children worldwide. This international gathering, delivered virtually in 2021, offers opportunities for a global audience of physician-scientists, clinicians, and educators to share research, explore new ideas, build career opportunities, and collaborate on future projects. Presentations cover issues of interest to generalists as well as topics critical to a wide array of specialty and sub-specialty areas.
