2009 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

2009 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

The PERC 2009 Annual Scientific Meeting was held in Lake Louise Alberta – attendees were welcomed from coast to coast as well as several researchers from Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN). The first Fellows Education Day was held on the Sunday prior to the research presentations – this day was a great success with distinguished guest speakers Drs. David McGillivray, Jonathan Pirie, and a team from MD Management Services. Dr. Nathan Kuppermann from PECARN presented on Diabetic Ketoacidosis research program at the staff research day. The ‘PERCky’ and ‘Acronym Contest’ were back again this year, presented by Vince Grant at the PERC dinner.
