Each year more than 100 residents, pediatricians and med students gather at the Capitol to discussand advocate for issues that have a direct impact on the health of children across Minnesota. Children can’t vote, and there are no pediatricians in our state legislature, which is why we do this every year. Pediatricians, residents, pediatric nurse practitioners and other pediatric advocates are welcome.

Welcome and overview of key issues; group discussion with legislative leaders
