Location

Enjoy Some Southern Hospitality!

Atlanta thrives in spirit, charm and hospitality and is full of recreational, sports and entertainment opportunities. 

Visit Underground Atlanta, offering history, music, shops and a variety of restaurants. Wander through Centennial Olympic Park and appreciate the dramatic ring fountain, court of flags, and beautiful landscaping.  Next  to Centennial Olympic Park,  experience the Georgia Aquarium,  the world's largest, housing over 100,000 animals in fresh and salt water. You can enjoy a first-hand look at news-in-the-making, as you witness what it takes to produce live news coverage daily at The CNN Center. Shopping enthusiasts will appreciate a visit to spectacular Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza, and Perimeter Mall, easy to reach on Atlanta's convenient and efficient transit system, MARTA.

The recently renovated Hyatt Regency Atlanta is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta on the MARTA line and within walking distance of many of Atlanta's sites. The hotel features a full health center, an outdoor pool, a lively  lobby bar and a Southern influenced dining experience at Sway, the hotel's unique restaurant. Just a short distance from the hotel are Centennial Olympic Park, the CNN Tower, The Georgia Aquarium, and Underground Atlanta.   Staying at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta will add to your comfort and enjoyment of the southern hospitality of this beautiful city.

Wherever you choose to spend your time in this city steeped in history and cultural heritage, whether it is shopping, sight-seeing, fine dining or just off relaxing, you are sure to enjoy every moment of your experience in Atlanta. To receive more information visit the website www.atlanta.net.

I was thrilled to see that you were offering a full-day preconference covering topics related to medically complicated children. This is the first time that I have been able to get a large amount of pertinent information on this group of children at a conference. Since most of my home-based caseload is made up of medically complicated children, this course was invaluable!
