The planning committee for the 16th pediatric nursing conference Touching the Future of Children invites you and your colleagues to submit an abstract to be considered for a poster and/or lecture presentation. We are very excited to offer another two-day conference.

As our conference title suggests, we welcome the expertise of health-care professionals who care for infants, children and adolescents in diverse pediatric arenas. Lectures and/or posters are accepted based on relevance to pediatric nursing. The abstract and required submission information must be postmarked by December 16, 2016, to be considered.

We invite you to gain and to share valuable knowledge, in addition to networking with participants from across the nation. Please distribute this call for abstracts to social workers, pharmacists, child life therapists, and other professionals who contribute to the highest quality of care for pediatric patients.

We look forward to discussing any aspect of this conference with you and receiving your abstract for consideration.
