Future of Pediatrics

CNHN has sponsored its Future of Pediatrics CME Program annually each June since 1999. The program includes two full-days of CME presentations - targeted at improving the care provided by practicing pediatricians. We have aligned our CME program with the Children’s National Annual Medical Staff dinner- bringing our community pediatricians and Children’s National specialists together for an evening.
