Hello fellow pediatricians!

The Board of Directors of the District of Columbia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is now accepting nominations for the Board.

  • Have you been wondering how to get involved with the DC AAP?
  • Do you have a vision for the practice of pediatrics in Washington, DC?
  • Do you have creative ideas on how to help kids but don’t know how to get them started?
  • Do you want to help advocate for the kids of DC?
