Quad Conference 2022

October 10-14

Cincinnati, OH

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital will host four conferences in one that feature the following lineup:

INoEA (International organization for Esophageal Atresia) is the international organization for all professionals working in the field of esophageal atresia and taking care of patients (neonates, infants, children, adolescents, and adults) born with esophageal atresia.

The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Pediatric Dysphagia Series was developed in 2004, and has been held on alternate years since its inception. It is an interdisciplinary forum designed for physicians, nurses, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, dietitians, social workers, and psychologists who engage in the instrumental and clinical evaluation and management of children with complex feeding issues. The course presents updates and addresses current practice trends that span the scope of the multiple disciplines involved in the care of infants and children with pediatric dysphagia.

The Cincinnati Airway Course is designed primarily for airway surgeons (otolaryngologists and pediatric surgeons), but should also be of value for pediatric pulmonologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, as well as speech pathologists, feeding therapists, airway nurses and nurse practitioners. It is the second comprehensive airway course (the first being in Porto Alegre in 2019), and includes three days of lectures, panels and case presentations, followed by a dissection day.

The Aerodigestive Conference
This course is designed for the Aerodigestive Society; a multidisciplinary group of physicians, clinicians, administrators, coordinators, nurses, speech and language pathologists, and other allied health workers who are members of teams that are committed to improving health worldwide for aerodigestive patients. This includes (but is not limited to) structural and functional airway and upper gastrointestinal tract disease, lung disease due to congenital or developmental abnormality or injury, feeding problems, genetic diseases, and neurodevelopmental disability.

This conference will be live in-person, with additional virtual attendance options including select livestream sessions and post conference on demand options. Attendance will be limited to approximately 500 people and content will be targeted to pediatric surgeons, otolaryngologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, speech pathologists, dieticians, researchers, etc.

While it is likely that COVID will still be with us, hopefully it will be safe to travel and meet, as many are VERY overdue for an in-person conference.

As such, registration will likely have to close at some point (once we hit 500 people), so please register early. To register and get more information visit the conference website.
