    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 33 years.

    The changing landscape of healthcare, as well as the challenging nature of pulmonary medicine prompts providers to be proactive and innovative when considering diagnostic and treatment options, future research focus, and avenues to best advocate for patients. To increase provider competence and clinical performance, the focus of this year’s conference is to discuss clinical advances and data related to inhalational lung injury, cystic fibrosis, aerodigestive and sleep disorders, asthma, and health equity. This 3-day conference will include didactic lectures and case-based discussion focused on advancing these areas. Our keynote guest speaker is a national expert in inflammation and infection in cystic fibrosis, leadership, and diversity, health equity, and inclusion will focus on educating and mentoring attendees on the recent advances in these areas. Additional education will be provided by our regional and local expert speakers 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.
