Greetings from PAPS President James Dunn

Dear Colleagues,

Salam – that means “greeting” in Indonesia.

As the travel restrictions ease around the world, we look forward to our 56th annual meeting in Bali. This will be the first time for PAPS to hold a meeting in Indonesia, and we will have a spectacular venue to be enjoyed by all. In addition to the congress tour and the songfest banquet, we will have amazing speakers for the Global Alliance Partnership and Journal of Pediatric Surgery lectures. Please come with your family and join me for this historic event.

James Dunn

About Us

PAPS is one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world but quite unique with an uplifting and fun sense of family between all members and guests. We are much more relaxed than any other surgical society. We don't even allow neckties at any PAPS meeting....wear one and it will be quickly cut off!

Join PAPS to share ideas and meet great new friends.
