Denver, CO
Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting
Alumni and Friends Reception

We hosted our alumni and friends at the Hyatt Regency by the Denver Convention Center. It was a smashing success with a larger than anticipated crowd! Nearly 150+ alumni and friends in attendance, who enjoyed a Denver-inspired affair. The evening was hosted by Tina Cheng, MD and Tom DeWitt, MD. This was the first large scale alumni event our new Chair of Pediatrics, Dr. Cheng, has experienced and she welcomed the crowd with a fantastic hospital update. People were so excited to see each other after such a long break and the enthusiasm in the room was palpable.

At this year’s PAS meeting, there was an extensive presence of presentations from Cincinnati Children’s faculty and staff in the form of platform presentations, posters, speeches and workshops. Additionally, two faculty and one resident were honored with awards from the PAS. Robert Kahn, MD, MPH received the Public Policy and Advocacy Award. Shipra Jain, MD received the Rowe Award in Clinical Research. The House Officer Research award was presented to Melissa Day, MD.

Eighteen faculty members represented Cincinnati Children’s in the exhibit booth by sharing their expertise and building relationships with over 350 conference attendees during exhibit hours. Faculty engaged with attendees sharing resources connected to their research.
