Progress and challenges abound in the care of critically ill newborns. As the evidence base for diagnosis and treatment decisions continues to grow, accepted "best practices" continue to evolve. Not only does this information facilitate improved short and long-term outcomes – it provides hope for solutions to the many unanswered questions and ongoing clinical puzzles that exist in perinatal/neonatal medicine.

As clinicians, we're encouraged by even small steps towards progress, and amazed at future possibilities.

To better reflect these concepts, we have developed an exciting new name for the conference! We would like to invite you to join us at the 29th Annual Fetus & Newborn: Improving Outcomes in  Perinatal and Neonatal Care. We will continue to address the wide-ranging challenges encountered by the perinatal and neonatal teams caring for these fragile patients and their families, and work towards improved outcomes—the ultimate goal of what we do.

Bring your questions and puzzling cases! Join in conversations with your fellow conference attendees and our stellar faculty members to problem-solve and hear fresh perspectives on issues you and your teams are hoping to resolve.

Mark your calendar, invite a colleague to join you, and plan on an energizing learning experience. See you in Washington, DC!

 Comments from past Live Webcast participants:

"It was great to feel as if I was sitting in the audience. The sound, visuals, and tech support were exceptional and immediate - thank you so much. I am already looking at future conferences I can be part of through the live webcast version."

"This was my first webcast "conference" and I will definitely do it again. I'll also promote this as an economical option for other clinical staff as a means to gain knowledge and CEUs. Honestly, the combination of being able to take a break from the delivery of care, AND being able to attend this conference from the comforts of my own home was just a great experience! Thanks for doing a great job!

"The webcast staff were awesome! The chat room made it more personal. My questions to speakers were answered, which was an important aspect of the conference for me."
