Text in blue box reads: Pediatrics Update with 2022 written behind it. Image of a small child with light skin sitting on an examination table with hands raised beside their ears looking towards a medical professional with medium-dark skin tone in scrubs with stethoscope around their neck. Medical professional is sitting so they are close to eye level with the small child. The medical professional is smiling.

This year's program will offer in-person learning sessions on sleep difficulties in the school-aged child, the medical workup of obesity, scoliosis assessment, and functional disorders. In addition we will discuss useful clinical pearls for ADHD prescribing.
