About Cotton Conference:
The Cotton Conference is named after Ernie Cotton, founder of the Section of Pediatric Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine at the University of Colorado. The Cotton Conference has been held consecutively for the past 32 years.

To increase provider competence and clinical performance, the focus of this conference is to discuss clinical advances and data related to bronchopulmonary dysplasia and lung development, pediatric sleep medicine, cystic fibrosis, and advocacy. This 2-day conference will include didactic lectures and case-based discussion focused on advancing these areas. Our keynote guest speaker is a national expert in pediatric sleep medicine and will focus on educating attendees on the recent advances in pediatric sleep apnea and the state of the science. Additional education will be provided by our regionally invited guest speakers who are both national experts in the fields of sleep medicine and cystic fibrosis, respectively, and by our local faculty and trainees. Possible outcomes related to this conference include improved quality, efficiency, and equity in the treatment of pediatric patients with pulmonary and sleep conditions.
