The annual MNAAP Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol is the chapter’s biggest advocacy event of the legislative calendar. 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 of Minnesota children.
Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol is set for Monday, March 23, 2020.
Last year more than 140 attendees met with 53 legislators from 32 districts. Key issues discussed included reducing firearm violence, increasing vaccine rates, improving mental health access and extending the provider tax. This is a great opportunity to nurture relationships with your legislators, educate them about key children’s health issues, and offer to be a resource to them throughout the session.
More information and registration details will be sent out in the coming months. We hope to see you there!
