Dear Colleagues:

The University of Wisconsin is excited to host this year’s Midwest Pediatric Cardiology Society Annual Meeting being held September 15-16, 2016 in beautiful Madison, WI. We are excited to host this event in the heart of the UW campus at The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. To learn more about this unique and vibrant venue, please visit https://discovery.wisc.edu/about.

We will be continuing the tradition of presenting the latest scientific work amongst the congenital centers in the Midwest. It is our goal to provide trainees the opportunity to present their work and have the opportunity to network with other trainees and professionals. The conference will recognize the top research presentations among the trainees, in addition to other distinguished work being done. Thursday’s sessions will be interprofessional, while Friday’s sessions will be the scientific sessions.

There will be social events for those not attending the interprofessional sessions on Thursday, such as a golf outing. Additionally, we invite you to join us Thursday evening for dinner and cocktails at Steenbock’s On Orchard, located right inside The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. This will be a great opportunity to network and catch up with old colleagues and friends. We also invite you to extend your stay past the conference and take advantage of Madison with the opportunity to attend a Wisconsin Badger football game where they will be playing the Georgia State Panthers. Signing up for these opportunities is done through conference registration.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference! Please encourage your colleagues to submit abstracts and join us for a great time of education and fellowship, as we share our discoveries and innovation.

Sincerely,

The Midwest Pediatric Cardiology Society Planning Committee
