Dear Friends and Colleagues
On behalf of the Wits Paediatric Fund, I am delighted to announce the 7th annual Up to SPAED conference in 2019. Up to SPAED has become the most consistent fundraiser to assist the three main teaching hospitals in Johannesburg that train paediatricians and allied health workers in related paediatric fields. Over the years, paediatric activities at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital, Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital and Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital have all benefited from our assistance.
We hope that you are planning to attend this meeting once again so we can share with you the latest research and trends in Paediatrics and Child Health, presented by both local faculty and invited speakers from further afield. It’s a lovely opportunity to network, catch up with old friends and quiz colleagues about interesting patients or difficult diagnoses. All activities are CPD accredited and there will be plenty of ethics sessions.
This year we have teamed up with Europa Organisation Africa and are thrilled to partner with such a passionate and committed team. Our conference is going green this year, in line with the necessity to protect our planet for our children. There will be preconference workshops on research in the modern era and radiotherapy, and a full day of psychosocial activities with a strong patient focus. Places for these workshops will be limited so please be sure to book early.
We look forward to personally welcoming you to Up to SPAED 2019.
See you there!
Dr Jennifer Geel
