Dear Members of the Society of Pediatric Liver Transplantation,
I hope this newsletter finds you in good health and high spirits. As we gear up for the summer, I am thrilled to announce that SPLIT 2023 meeting registration is now open for our annual meeting in Montreal. The Education Committee has planned an agenda that serves as a testament to the extraordinary dedication and passion within our international community. Register at www.split2023.org. For those who are travelling internationally to Canada, be sure that your passports are updated!
We welcome this meeting as an opportunity to share innovations across our centers. Abstracts have opened- the deadline is June 30, 2023, so please submit!
The SPLIT Council convened at EMMES headquarters in Rockville, Maryland this last month for the Mid-Year Meeting. We continue to refine the strategic directions for SPLIT in its new form and I look forward to providing updates on our continued mission to be the voice of children receiving liver transplantation. Key to our mission is the involvement and investment of our Patient, Family and Engaged Partners (PFEP) group, who I am delighted to announce that Brittany Munn is co-chairing with Jen White. Many thanks to her eloquent statement regarding the importance of pediatric representation in considering the OPTN Modernization Initiative.

Please consider making a donation to SPLIT this year- our society relies on the generosity of donors like you to fund our mission of improving outcomes in children receiving liver transplantation through research, improving care, training and mentoring, and supporting children and families. These donations go a long way in helping us to fund important initiatives. Your gift, no matter the size, will make a real difference in the lives of children and families affected by transplantation.
