Advances in Childhood Rheumatic Diseases Symposium

The Division of Rheumatology at the Hospital for Sick Children is happy to announce the inaugural Advances in Childhood Rheumatic Diseases, an International Symposium, will take place on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto.

This year’s theme is very special as we celebrate the retirement of Dr. Earl Silverman, for whom we will dedicate the day and celebration dinner. This full-day symposium will feature both international and local leading experts who will speak on the diagnosis, treatment and current research endeavours relating to rheumatic diseases. The audience will consist of both national and international rheumatologists (adult and paediatric) as well as paediatricians, nephrologists and internists. Stay tuned for further details!
