The PIDS Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to Party on the Potomac!  An evening of fun, fellowship and discussion of vaccine challenges in the 21st century.  Our guest speaker, Dr. Peter Hotez, will describe recent changes to the pediatric and adult vaccine schedules, focusing primarily on newer vaccine technologies and vaccine adjuvants and share common misconceptions regarding vaccine safety.  In addition to the mini-lecture, The PIDS Distinguished Physician and Young Investigator Awards will be presented.

Here are 5 reasons why should you attend:

  1. Meet your old Pediatric ID friends
  2. Make new Pediatric ID friends
  3. Share fond memories with PIDS members and other colleagues
  4. Network…for research ideas, for job opportunities, for FUN
  5. "Grab a prop and strike a pose” at the ID-themed photo booth

More details, including ticket costs, are provided below.  There will be an easy, stream-lined check in process and a delicious buffet dinner. 

Tickets are available for $75; tables of 10 can be reserved for $750.

Discounted tickets for $25 are available for trainees of all levels (e.g., medical student, resident, fellow).
