10th Annual International Pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Conference
 
 
Record Number of Abstracts Submitted to 2019 Antimicrobial Stewardship Conference - St. Louis, MO
 

During this year's Antimicrobial Sterwardship Conference, We had a record number of participants (220) and abstracts (77) this year. Leading experts from around the country discussed important antimicrobial stewardship topics including Gram-negative resistance (Latania Logan MD), stewardship for the pediatric intensive care unit (Kathleen Chiotos MD) and communication insights for stewards (Julia Szymczak, PhD). The three Pediatric ID ASP Fellow award winners (Rebecca Same, MD, Sophie Katz, MD and Maria Equiguren Jimenez, MD) presented their outstanding research.   Two ASP conference attendees had the following to say about the 2019 conference:

"This was my first time attending this conference.  I absolutely loved it. It was for two days so not too long. Lectures were all pediatric relevant and in line with ASP priorities.  Networking with colleagues in other places is invaluable. Will surely go back next year!"  ~ Dr. Upadhyayula
 
"The PIDS ASP conference was a fantastic opportunity to talk to other stewards about their programs and research and discuss some of the obstacles that we face at my home institution. I came away from the conference with multiple ideas for our program from small tweaks to larger policy goals." ~ Dr. TeKippe
 

SAVE THE DATE for next year on May 28th and 29th for the 11th annual International Pediatric ASP meeting.
