AAP Legislative Conference

This election year is a critical time to be speaking up for children in our nation’s capital. It is up to us to ensure that children’s health is a top priority for our elected leaders. This conference brings together pediatricians, pediatric trainees and medical students from across the country who share a passion for child health advocacy.

Participants attend advocacy skills-building workshops, hear from distinguished guest speakers, learn about policy priorities impacting children and go to Capitol Hill to urge Congress to support strong child health policies. The conference will also feature a Pediatric Subspecialty Advocacy Track with specific legislative and skills building workshops uniquely focused on the interests and needs of pediatric medical subspecialists and surgical specialists.
