A compilation of professional and academic accomplishments and recognition in the popular press

In Brief



  • Stanford faculty in the Division of Neonatology were busy at this year’s annual Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) Conference in Seattle, WA from July 25 – July 28, 2019. Multiple members of the division (including Drs. Gupta, Joshi, Frymoyer, Benitz, Elizabeth Blecharczyk, MD, and Jadene Wong, MD) helped lead and facilitate a variety of mini-plenary sessions, workshops, and subcommittee meetings throughout the conference. Members of our Neonatal Hospitalist team also planned and led a Newborn Medicine pre-conference focused on Neonatal Resuscitation skills. Our faculty collaborated with others from across Stanford and from across the country in presenting sessions on a wide range of topics, including the care of late preterm infants, managing infants at risk for early onset sepsis, neonatal resuscitation, value based newborn care, and gender bias.


The annual PHM Conference offers a platform for us to share our knowledge in newborn care with the pediatric hospitalist community with the goal of improving the health and well-being of hospitalized infants and children nationwide. The PHM Conference (co-sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Academic Pediatric Association, and Society of Hospital Medicine) is the largest annual gathering each year for pediatric hospitalists and attracted over 1,600 attendees this year.
