TECaN at PAS
AAP SoNPM’s TECaN group was very well represented at the meeting and had a wonderful turn out at our annual TECaN reception at PAS. This was an excellent opportunity to meet fellow TECaN members, network, and discuss the opportunities available through our group! As usual, PAS had an overwhelming number of excellent talks, workshops, and poster presentations. Some highlights included the annual William Silverman, MD Lecture given by Dr. Jeffrey Horbar and a Tribute to the Life and Work of Dr. Maureen Hack given by Dr. Fanaroff, Dr. Vohr, and Dr. Wilson-Costello. Many of the members of our TECaN executive council also had outstanding platform presentations of their research including Laura Rubinos, Emily Fishman, and Shawn Sen (SPR David G. Nathan Award winner). Both our TECaN executive council and our TECaN members were well represented in platform and poster sessions throughout the meeting.
