Dear colleagues,

The 3rd International Eurasian Social Pediatrics Annual Congress and the 7th National Social Pediatrics Annual Congress, organized by the Social Pediatrics Association, and hosted by the Dokuz Eylül University Rectorate will be held at the DEU Sabancı Cultural Center, in İzmir, between 16-20 November 2022.

It’s every child’s right to be born and grow up in the best conditions and become an adult after being supported for their growth and development. The main goal of us, pediatricians, as child advocates, is to protect and support all children’s well-being who are the guarantee of our future. The first step to ensuring the appropriate developmental stages for a child is to support maternal and child health together. Thus, educating expectant parents to acquire sensitive and practical parenting skills, supporting breastfeeding, and maintaining well-child visits in line with scientific data is quite important.

On behalf of the Social Pediatrics Association in Turkey, we, the Local Organising Committee, are excited about the rich scientific and cultural programme and are pleased to invite you to register, come and join us in İzmir. We are looking forward to seeing you in November 2022 at our congress which is organized in memory of Prof. Olcay Neyzi who was one of the pioneers of Social Pediatrics in our country.
