Mayo Clinic and Sanford Health Team Up for Continuing Education

4th Annual T. Denny Sanford Pediatric Symposium Held in Rochester, MN

(Sioux Falls, SD) – Helping clinicians who care for children continue their education was the focus of the 4th annual T. Denny Sanford Pediatric Symposium held in Rochester, Minnesota at the end of April.

A curriculum was designed to meet the needs of regional clinicians in primary care who care for infants, children and adolescents by addressing recent breakthroughs in topics both common to the pediatric age group as well as concerning the parent and primary care clinician.

The symposium is a program done in collaboration with Sanford Health and the Mayo Clinic. Next year's event will be held in Sioux Falls, SD.

Six Sanford physicians presented at the April 23rd event. Topics ranged from youth athletics and pediatric resuscitation, to chronic diarrhea and childhood depression.

The symposium is supported by the T. Denny Sanford Collaboration Endowment.
