In 2015, the Pediatric Urology Fall Congress will be held in conjunction with our European colleagues in Prague and PUNS members expressed the need for an education meeting in the United States for those not able to attend the Prague meeting. After careful deliberation of several options, the leadership has determined that PUNS will hold a 2 day pediatric urology program in Indianapolis. The program will include scientific sessions, industry exhibits, the annual business meeting and updates from the Special Interest Groups.
