Child Advocacy

Pediatricians and parents with an interest and drive to make a difference in child and adolescent health are important child advocates. The KY Chapter of the AAP helps members reach out to their legislators to testify and/or publicly raise issues of importance to child health and well-being through a variety of forums including lobbying and coalition building.
