Day at the Capitol – March 4, 2021
Virtual Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol 2021
Thank you to the more than 120 pediatricians, trainees, and medical students who participated in the Virtual Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol on Thursday, March 4. The event is the chapter’s largest advocacy initiative of the year and offered the opportunity for MNAAP members to learn more about the chapter’s legislative priorities, receive training in effective advocacy, and connect with legislators during breakout sessions.
In addition to hearing from five Minnesota key legislators who spoke to the group about the child health issues being debated at the Capitol this year, a total of 40 individual breakout sessions took place to connect participants with their individual legislators.
Thank you to all who joined us for Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol this year! If you participated, please be sure to fill out the online evaluation form to help us in future planning efforts.
