Save the Date: March 18, 2015 for Pediatricians' Day at the Capitol!

Children can't vote, and there are no pediatricians in our state legislature, which is why more than 100 residents and community pediatricians gather at the state Capitol each year to advocate for pediatric related issues. 

Learn about MNAAP's priority issues for the year, hear directly from legislators about the top issues being debated, and attend a meeting with your own legislators, if you wish.  Consider blocking out your schedule for 2-3 hours that afternoon to join us.
