The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)  has issued its top 10 resolutions for the coming year – and the list includes one submitted by MNAAP Board Member Dr. Nate Chomilo to prohibit the use of race-based medicine. Dr. Chomilo worked with colleagues at the Minnesota Academy of Family Practice, Drs. Andrea Westby and Ebiere Okah, on the wording of the resolution.
