A Call for Pediatricians to Offer Expertise and Support
WIAAP gathers resources, contact information, talking points, and key position statements for our members to make involvement accessible and straightforward. From calling state representatives to providing expert opinion, WIAAP seeks to empower all pediatric healthcare professionals to be the best advocate for children, locally and nationally.
We reach out to our members to contact legislators and other policy makers (federal, state or even local) to show support and offer expertise on issues critical to children. We provide position statements and talking points to help make this as simple as possible. It is said that a contact from a constituent represents the opinions of 200. One call from a physician weighs in far more significantly. You are trusted sources of information.
Within the past year, members of WIAAP have provided expert testimony on significant legislation affecting the health and safety of children in Wisconsin. WIAAP members detailed the importance of pre-participation physicals taking place in the primary medical care home and the significance of the statewide immunization registry. We call on our members to actively participate in the legislative process to ensure a high standard of pediatric care across Wisconsin and to protect the health and well being of our state’s children.
