1. Mentoring
    The Nevada Chapter encourages Members to sign up for the AAP Mentorship Program. Mentorship is one of the most important tools for professional development and has been linked to greater productivity, career advancement, and professional satisfaction.
  2. Membership
    Membership in our chapter offers numerous opportunities for education, leadership, and involvement in state and local advocacy. Our chapter is the primary professional home for pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists in Nevada.
  3. Updates and Events
    We email updates and an events calendar to chapter members. Non-members who also want to receive these updates click below to join our email list.
  4. Scholarship
    DEADLINE 1/15/20: This year, the American Academy of Pediatrics Legislative Conference will be held in Washington, DC April 5 - 7, 2020. Nevada AAP has designated one $500 scholarship for any chapter member to use toward registration, airfare, or hotel.
  5. Walk with a Doc
    Each month, in Reno and in Las Vegas, our chapter leads a free, kid-friendly, Walk with a Doc event where area doctors meet patients, their parents, and their grandparents at a public park to encourage exercise through example. We hope you'll join us and help us let families know about our events.
  6. Minor Consent
    It is important that physicians know at what age, and in which circumstances, adolescents have privacy and consent rights. Our chapter is fortunate that our colleagues at Nevada Primary Care Association have shared with us their Minor Consent Guide (click below to download the file). Chapter members who wish to obtain a free printed copy of this guide should contact Dawn Gentsch at
  7. Prescribe 365
    The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) has established a website called Prescribe 365 to hep physicians and patients to better understand current prescribing rules for pain medications including online training for prescribers.
  8. Volunteer
    The AAP has a centralized and easy to access list of chapter and National volunteer opportunities for AAP members. There are positions for everyone, whether you are in training, in practice, or retired.
