Who are we?

MNAAP BoardWe are Minnesota's pediatricians. And we are committed to protecting and advancing the health of every child and adolescent in Minnesota.

With over 1,000 members, we are not just an organization of primary care docs. We are geneticists, surgeons, ER specialists, and developmental specialists. We are private-practice clinicians, and we are academics. We are not just Twin Cities clinicians. We hail from all over the state--from Brainerd, Duluth, St. Cloud, Faribault, Austin, and Rochester. And we are not just from independent private practices. Many of us work for very large, multi-specialty groups such as CentraCare,  HealthPartners, Sanford, and Mayo Clinic. We are full-time, part-time, still-in-training, and retired.

We have members who have worked more than forty years in pediatrics and others less than a year. We have lifelong Minnesotans and others who are just spent their first winter here. Our organization has a lot to offer pediatricians from all corners of the state, from all sorts of practices, and from all sorts of occupational directions. We tackle the greatest issues facing Minnesotan children and their providers.

Our Vision

The MNAAP, a partnership of pediatricians, will lead to assure optimal health of all children in the state of Minnesota. We will accomplish this by:

  1. Advocating for all children and their families as the resource for child health policy makers so that children of Minnesota achieve maximum potential of physical, mental and social well-being; 
  2. Collaborating and networking with others with a shared vision to guide on-going improvement of children's health (by serving as the source of knowledge and information of pediatric healthcare);
  3. Existing as the statewide resource to connect pediatric healthcare providers, to engage members’ talents and to increase the effectiveness of physicians and staff through advocacy, networking and educational opportunities; and
  4. Guiding transformation of pediatric practice to a sustainable model that improves child health and thereby society.

The Minnesota Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, is a 501(c)(6), tax-exempt organization, incorporated in the State of Minnesota. Our chapter is part of AAP District VI (Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Canada). The Minnesota Chapter is considered one of the large chapters of the AAP.
