personal invitation to our third annual meeting "Advancing the Frontiers of
Pediatric Emergency Care in Tennessee" on September 17-18th, 2004 in
Nashville, TN. This conference is a result of collaboration between the 4
Children's Hospital's in our state, TN Chapter of the AAP and the Children's
Emergency Care Alliance (the 501c3 foundation which assists the state
Committee on Pediatric Emergency Care).

Earn CME/CEU's while you learn cutting edge information on urgent and
emergent pediatric issues from an outstanding group of speakers! The wide
range of topics & workshops will be of interest to anyone who works with

very competitively priced. Please see the attached brochure for details.

City. Take a walking tour of downtown Nashville and experience the roots of
