Pediatricians' Day at the Capitol is March 21

Each year MNAAP brings together more than 100 residents, community pediatricians and medical students to discuss and advocate for issues that have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of Minnesota children. Ensuring access to care is MNAAP's top priority for 2017.

Following a review of the legislative process, we'll hear from our state lobbyist and key legislators about specific child health issues being debated. You'll have the opportunity to weigh in and discuss priority issues with your own legislators as well.

MNAAP Hot Topics in Pediatrics Conference & Annual Meeting

More upcoming events

The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would end the federal government's commitment to state Medicaid programs as we know it. We stand behind the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other groups in opposing the per capita caps and other restrictions that would lead to drastic reductions in children covered by Medicaid, significant cuts to benefits and even tighter access to physicians.

Please take a moment to contact your representatives in Congress and urge them to ensure every child has access to health insurance, care and services. The process takes less than 5 minutes, but collectively, our impact could last years.
