Continuing in the tradition of pediatric pathology conferences in the Aspen area since 1970, the 2020 lecture‐based course is designed for general and pediatric pathologists, but will be of interest to pediatric surgeons and pediatricians who would like to advance their knowledge in various pediatric neoplastic and non‐neoplastic diseases. Handouts and PowerPoint presentations including case discussions will be made available on the University of Chicago website. In advance, each participant will receive a microscopic slide set of 24 cases with clinical histories. The cases will be discussed in detail during the conference.
