Advocacy

AAP-OC advocates on behalf of families and pediatricians at the state and local level. Our chapter members are also members of AAP CA, which is made up of the four chapters in California. AAP CA work with policy makers in Sacramento to promote legislation that improves the lives of youth in our state. On the local level, AAP-OC has partnerships with The Orange County Healthcare Agency, CHOC Children’s Hospital, and UC Irvine along with other public and private entities that allow us to work on initiatives and education that promote pediatric excellence.

The American Academy of Pediatrics Legislative Conference will take place in Washington, DC, April 5-7, 2020. Join us and learn how to be a strong advocate for children’s health! Pediatricians and pediatric trainees from across the country will come together to 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.
