Region 1 had a good showing at our region breakfast early Monday morning, May 6 at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting in Washington, DC. In our introductions this year we shared "one word resolutions" for the upcoming academic year, which ran the gamut from "change" to "move" to "produce" to "breathe".
Incoming APA president David Keller from University of Massachusetts is a Region 1 member and came to breakfast to give updates from the Board of Directors on the organization's strategic priorities. We are pleased to note here that president-elect Mark Schuster from Boston Children's is also from our region.
Marcia VanVleet from Brown addressed the region on updates on the newest APA practice based research network BORN (Better Outcomes through Research for Newborns). Marcia stepped down after two terms as region co-chair, and we had the pleasure of welcoming Matthew Sadof from Baystate to a three-year term as a new region co-chair. Matthew is a general academic pediatrician with interests in school health and asthma. He joins Melissa Held from the University of Connecticut and Alison Holmes from Dartmouth as the Region 1 leaders.
Planning is in full swing for our regional meeting. It will most likely take place quite soon-in fall 2013, as spring dates that do not conflict with holidays, school breaks, other meetings, or late season snowstorms have proven elusive. The planned theme is "Professional Development in Academic Pediatrics." A save the date will be coming to your inbox soon, so please watch for it, alert your colleagues, and think about trainees who could have abstracts ready to present this fall.
In a final note, the co-chairs are hard at work on maintaining and expanding APA membership in our region. If you have been a member in good standing for some time, we may solicit your help in retention and recruitment efforts in your home divisions and departments.
Hope to see you this fall at our region meeting.
