Hi All,

It has been an exciting year for P2 and we are getting ready for our yearly meeting before PAS on May 4th in Toronto, so please sign up through http://bit.ly/2oxMKoN. For those interested in some extra networking/discussion on specific research proposals or ongoing efforts we are having a working session the afternoon of May 3rd.

A few notes for the newer members. If you have specific interests in research, education, or anything else, please connect with myself or the chairs of the respective communities. We have several ongoing projects and would like hear from all the various voices out there.  On the active efforts front our first clinical research protocol for Intussusception is out and ready to have groups join for enrollment. The  Lung working group is currently developing protocols for trauma and dyspnea. There also will likely be Shock/Arrest related survey disseminated at the meeting.

For everyone, please stay involved with the various societies out there – the PAS, AAP, ACEP, SAEM, AIUM, SCUF, SUSME (whew). We should make sure that there is a strong pediatric voice within the larger POCUS community. SAEM’s Academy of Emergency Ultrasound has elections this week so check out the candidates and vote!

P2 is also looking for a President-elect to get nominated to serve a 2 year term 2018-20 and then assuming the role of President 2020-22. Whether it is you, or you think someone else should get asked, please consider joining the Executive Committee and help to advance P2 into the 2020’s.  It has been a pleasure serving in this role and seeing the growth and maturity in the group over the past four years.  Elections will occur prior to our meeting and the result announced in Toronto.

Can’t wait to see everyone in Toronto!
