MEDICAL ACADEMY OF PEDIATRIC AND SPECIAL NEEDS
Fall 2022 FUNCTIONAL & TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE CONFERENCE

We are excited to announce our Fall MAPS conference for 2022! We look forward to your active participation to adopt new information on various treatment options and cutting-edge medical research.

This year we will have a new look and format. Thursday will have our introductory course, Foundation of MAPS, along with the final ACM course, MAPS in Clinical Practice. In addition, we will have an advanced course for experienced practitioners covering some of the newest innovations in integrative pediatrics. Unlike previous years, we will have two days of plenary sessions covering the topic of immune activation syndromes in pediatrics (both the science and practical solutions). We look forward to seeing you at our conference for three days of education, networking, and a renewal of our friendships.
