Pediatric Sleep Medicine 2013: Advances in Pediatric Sleep Medicine in Research, Patient Care, Policy, and Education

This annual conference is designed to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of basic and clinical researchers, clinicians, educators, policy makers, and trainees involved in pediatric sleep medicine. The Pediatric Sleep Medicine Conference 2013 has a very distinctive perspective and will offer pediatric practitioners and trainees the opportunity to unite to learn about state of the art developments in clinical and research arenas of pediatric sleep medicine. The meeting represents an exceptional opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, establish collaborative projects, and set priorities for the future of the field.

Attendance at Pediatric Sleep Medicine 2013 will give participants a broad understanding of the current state-of-the-art of pediatric sleep and pediatric sleep medicine, including current clinical practices and recent basic science research in pediatric sleep.
