Each year, conference attendees look forward to learning about innovative products and services they can use to make a difference in the lives of the children and families they serve.

ACLP attendees come from leading organizations in pediatric healthcare. Don’t miss the opportunity to engage with members of child life departments from hospitals and other healthcare settings across the country and around the world.
