Collaboration among multiple specialties, including the general pediatrician, gastroenterology, nutrition, radiology, surgery, endocrinology, and genetics is the foundation for an evidence-based, standardized approach. This session, composed of quick bites and cases from experts from one of the largest pediatric pancreas programs in the country, will provide the general pediatrician and pediatric gastroenterologist with the most up-to-date, evidence-based approaches to diagnosis and management of pediatric pancreatitis.
