The 29th Annual Meeting of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia was held in San Diego on October 23, 2015. The meeting was a great success: renowned speakers made presentations on various challenging issues, including transfusion medicine, trauma, brain injury, and infectious disease and its prevention. For your reference, a recap of the meeting can be found at:
At the meeting, SPA presented Dr. Bill Greeley, from The Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania, with the second SPA Myron Yaster Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his innumerable contributions to our specialty. In addition, our SPA East African Fellow, Dr. Christopher Chanda, was selected for the ASA Global Scholars Program, which allowed him to attend both SPA and ASA meetings. Dr. Chanda also had the opportunity to observe the clinical practice of pediatric anesthesia at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Monroe Carell Jr.Children’s hospital at Vanderbilt.On behalf of SPA, I would like to thank ASA for its generosity in co-sponsoring Dr. Chanda and for initiating this program that will undoubtedly bring much- needed expertise to the perioperative care of children in underserved parts of the globe.
