Inaugural Children's National – NIAID Symposium 2018

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 7:30am to 4:00pm
Event Details: 
In 2017, Children's National Health System and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) formed a partnership to focus on pediatric studies of significant interest to investigators at both institutions. This collaboration was framed and supported through an NIAID supplement to the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN). In addition to conducting those studies, Children's National and NIAID will offer joint training opportunities for investigators interested in studying and caring for children with infections, immunologic, allergic, and auto-inflammatory diseases.
Please join us for the first annual CN-NIAID symposium! It will be a wonderful day of interactive learning at Children's National, including an overview of the CN-NIAID partnership, associated projects, and training program; two robust panel discussions, a tour of the Children's National campus, and an analysis of complex care in learning health systems.
Highlighted speakers include:
Anthony Fauci, MD Director National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease
Kurt Newman, MD CEO Children's National Health System
William Smoyer, MD Vice President Nationwide Children's Hospital
James Gilman, MD CEO NIH Clinical Center


Advanced registration is required and must be completed by 12:00 pm EST on September 13, 2018. Breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments will be served. Garage parking is available onsite for guests to Children's National. Guests will need additional time to park and check in at one of two lobbies.
