The Nevada Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (Nevada AAP) is an organization of pediatricians who live and work in Nevada and have dedicated their professional lives to the health of all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. The Nevada AAP improves pediatric outcomes through increased access to care, legislative and community advocacy, supporting research, educating pediatric healthcare providers, and support of chapter members.
The Nevada Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is a separate entity from the national organization known as the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The Nevada AAP organizes and leads activities throughout Nevada to support the families that seek care from our chapter physicians. Click here for information for families about COVID-19.
In addition to supporting chapter members, the Nevada AAP also invites other physicians who care for children, adolescents, and young adults throughout Nevada to join in our activities and continuing medical education. Click here for COVID-19 information for pediatricians.
Our chapter is busy with events for Nevada physicians, and for the families we serve.
Although we are all practicing "social distancing", there are still many online opportunities to "get together" to network and learn together. We may be physically separated, but not emotionally or intellectually.
The Nevada AAP Blog gives us an opportunity to take state-wide, national, and international health news and best practices, and focus it specifically on improving pediatric healthcare in Nevada.
