Benefits of Membership

  • A national association of pediatricians and other pediatric healthcare professionals who endeavor to be a trustworthy resource to parents, healthcare professionals, and policymakers for information on the optimal care of infants, children, and adolescents.

  • An organization that produces policy statements on the care and well-being of children which is grounded in sound research rather than social consensus.
