Event Details

The next Abraham Thall and Sadye Stone Thall Educational Symposium will take place on Tuesday, JUNE 18, 2019. The title of this session is “Advances in Pain Management of the Pediatric Patient” and will include a presentation by J.A. Jeevendra Martyn, M.D., chief of anesthesia at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Boston.

Dr. Martyn will present his timely research findings as part of the Thall Symposium on June 18.
