Doctors at the University of Virginia Children's Hospital are discussing their work in keeping kids safe.
Dozens of presenters gathered Thursday morning in Charlottesville to talk about the latest research in the battle against childhood cancer, allergies, and more.
The goal is to one day make it easier for kids to combat serious health issues.
“What we'd like to say is that over this generation we've made dramatic strides improving the quality of care for children with cancer, premature infants and may other childhood disease,” says Dr. James Nataro of the UVa. Department of Pediatrics. “And the way we do that is by introducing an element of research into the care we provide every day.”
The forum provided an opportunity for researchers to exchange ideas and discuss possible options for moving forward.
This was the 26th year for the event.
