MEDICAL ACADEMY OF PEDIATRIC AND SPECIAL NEEDS
Spring 2023 FUNCTIONAL & TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE CONFERENCE

We are excited to announce our Spring MAPS conference for 2023 ! 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 Chronic Infection, including Lyme and Lyme Co-Infections 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.
