Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend The Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman 4th International Conference on Pediatric Chronic Diseases, Disability and Human Development, which will be held in Jerusalem on 20-22 January, 2015.

The high rates of children with chronic diseases and disabilities impose a major challenge on the health, welfare and educational systems to help these children to integrate with their peers, and later on, be a productive part of our society.  Therefore, this year we directed our focus towards breaking the barriers and building bridges between the children, the families and the community. Furthermore, our society becomes more and more multicultural which requires cultural adjustments when approaching these children and their families.

Leading health and welfare care professionals from Israel and around the world will lecture and conduct symposia on a wide range of topics related to pediatric and adolescent chronic diseases, disabilities and human development.

Specific topics to be addressed include: the management of children and adolescents with chronic diseases, pain management, intellectual disability, autism, eating disorders, mental illness, impact of chronic disease and disability on human development, shared decision-making, improved quality of care and strategies for ensuring the social and educational enfranchisement of children with chronic diseases or people with disabilities, all these towards growing the child and part of the adult society.

The lectures and workshops of the Conference are geared to professionals from all disciplines involved in the care of children and adolescents with chronic diseases and people with disabilities as well as those involved in the field of human development and public health. The organizers of the conference are inviting the submission of abstracts. Pertinent information about abstracts and other aspects of the conference including registration, lodging, travel arrangements, and additional programs associated with the Conference can be found on this website.

We hope that you can join us in Jerusalem, an enchanting city, for a delightful and fruitful conference that will advance the cause of people with chronic diseases and disabilities.

Warm regards and see you all in Jerusalem 2015
