Annual summary:
Our SIG activities were mostly centered on our presentation for the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting. This year we had a very well attended SIG meeting regarding pediatric readmissions and quality improvement efforts aimed at improving readmissions throughout the country. A panel of national experts discussed their research and ways to collaborate on this effort.

Several or our SIG members also serve as organizers and/or faculty at the annual pre-PAS Quality Improvement meeting.
