Welcome!

April 2024

Spring comes to Georgia and hope all our members are doing well and getting a little vacation at this time of year. The state legislature finished up its 40-day session on March 28 and all in all, a pretty good session for Georgia pediatricians and our young patients. Click here to visit our Legislative page for a summary of the action. And one more thing: if you contacted your legislator(s) during the session, please take time to drop them a brief thank you note before April is out.  We often ask things of our legislators—and rightly so—they are there to represent us. But sometimes we forget to thank them when they support our issues.

Speaking of events, the Georgia AAP regularly produces webinars, EPIC ® programs, and ECHO® programs for our your benefit—and they are always free to our members.  These programs focus on immunizations, breastfeeding, mental & behavioral health, and other timely topics.  Visit our calendar page for a list of all our upcoming events.

And finally, just around the bend is Pediatrics By the Sea!
