State Advocacy

AAP California Chapters 1, 3 and 4 advocate together on state-level issues related to children’s health and well-being and the practice of pediatrics. Our work is strictly nonpartisan, and addresses the many CA bills and budget items related to child health access and reimbursement, vaccines, mental and behavioral health, prevention of childhood injury and trauma, youth vaping, and childhood obesity, the importance of achieving racial and ethnic child health parity, and advocacy for COVID19 policies that support the public health and the viability of pediatric practices.
