This pod was recorded at the CORD 2018 conference from San Antonio. Dara and Jenny are joined by Drs. Nikita Joshi, Adam Rosh and Hilary Fairbrother talking about childcare at academic medical conferences. The recent twitter thread on welcoming children at the Royal College of EM conference prompted this chat. We give shout out to our own conferences who have been increasingly welcoming to parents. We discuss many ways conferences can support kids and their caregivers.
