Mission: New York Chapter 3
We’re pleased to announce that we now have a Chapter 3 video, “Why Chapter Membership Matters.” It was debuted at the AAP’s Annual Leadership Forum in Itasca, IL in March, and was featured in the AAP’s Chapter Leader Link earlier this week.
Thank you to all of our members who participated in the video, and especially to Dr. Julie Dunbar, for putting it together!
Welcome to the New York Chapter 3 Website
The American Academy of Pediatrics, founded in 1930, unites pediatricians throughout the Americas to ensure for all young people the attainment of their full potential for physical, emotional, and social health. To this end, the Academy dedicates its resources to professional education, advocacy for children, representation of pediatricians, public education, access to health care, and service to children.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is composed of over fifty Chapters, organized into ten regional Districts. Whereas most of these Districts cover multiple states, District II consists solely of New York State and serves as the statewide focal point for its three Chapters. Chapter 3 is comprised of the New York City Boroughs of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, and the upstate counties of Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester.
Chapter 3 currently has over 1,600 members, representing pediatricians and pediatric specialists.
