May 2004: San Fransisco - Micronutrient, Malaria, TB

2004 Inaugural PGPR Symposium and Workshop

At the May 2004 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting in San Francisco, PGPR held its first symposium, focusing on several major diseases affecting children in developing regions: micronutrient deficiency, malaria and tuberculosis. In addition, abstracts of original research in global childhood disease were presented by scientists chosen from those who responded to an international call.

Following the symposium, a one-day PGPR workshop was held to determine the goals and plans for PGPR.
