Between October 26-28, dedicated pediatric health professionals gathered in Boston, MA, for three immersive days of cutting-edge education, hands-on clinical training, dynamic networking, and vital knowledge sharing at the Pediatric Immune Health Summit.
Throughout the expertly curated program, attendees gained exclusive access to the latest insights and integrative strategies from pioneering thought leaders in functional pediatric medicine. Across 30 information-packed sessions, presenters offered an in-depth exploration of timely pediatric immune health topics ranging from the implications of polyvagal theory for pediatric patients to optimizing early childhood development through the gut microbiome.
