Learn Why You Should Attend WCPD 2017

On behalf of the Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD), it is my great honor to invite you to the 13th World Congress of Pediatric Dermatology – also known as WCPD 2017. This unique event takes place only once every four years, and we are pleased to be hosting it in Chicago, Illinois, USA July 6-9, 2017.

Co-sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), WCPD 2017 is truly a global event which offers a multitude of opportunities for teaching, learning, networking and collaboration. Physicians with a passion for pediatric dermatology will gather to hear both practical and cutting-edge lectures, present and share the results of their research, and develop or strengthen professional relationships. Experts from many contributing specialties will be present, and the conference welcomes attendance from all physicians who wish to further their clinical expertise, broaden their global networking, and expand their research partnership opportunities.

Please remember there are many ways to directly participate as a part of the WCPD 2017 program. Submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation or your most unique case for our Cases of the Year session. Submissions will be accepted online August 1, 2016 through January 9, 2017.

Chicago is the 3rd largest city in the US, and is well-known for its music, theater, architecture, shopping, dining and world-class cultural attractions. Our picturesque skyline studs the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan, and our host hotel, Chicago Hyatt Regency, is a AAA Four Diamond property situated along the Chicago River.

We look forward to seeing you at WCPD 2017!

Sincerely,

Anthony J. Mancini, MD
