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.
