In response to feedback from our most important constituents—you—NICHQ was delighted to announce that we rejoined our two signature events this year. The Obesity Congress and the Annual Forum for Improving Children’s Healthcare were held March 8-11, 2010, in Atlanta, Georgia.
Folding these two important events into one comprehensive summit allowed attendees with travel and budget restraints to maximize their conference attendance, which is increasingly important in today’s turbulent economy. The Annual Forum for Improving Children’s Healthcare and Childhood Obesity Congress promised to be the largest pediatric quality conference in the US, and by pairing with the Childhood Obesity Congress, featured best practices in childhood obesity assessment, prevention and treatment.
The forum centered around five topic areas:
- Patient Safety
- Childhood Obesity
- Chronic Conditions
- Quality Improvement—linked to finance, advocacy and equity in care
- Health IT
