In alignment with our chapter’s strategic priorities, WIAAP collaborates with our state's executive, legislative and departmental leaders on policies impacting child and family health and the practice of pediatrics. We convene a multi-organizational Pediatric Policy Council that reviews relevant issues at hand in the state, collaborating on advocacy on issues of common interest to strengthen messaging to decision-makers. The Wisconsin legislature resumes session in January, 2019.

Some state advocacy issues on the horizon for 2018-2019

  • Biennial budget planning
  • Foster care
  • Medicaid
  • Mental and behavioral health
  • Oral health access
  • Vaccination
If, at any time, you would like to know our position on an issue or want to request our support, please contact us. We review these inquiries on a case by case basis and provide background information, and, where appropriate, chapter-level support.

Our organization and executive director are registered through the state Ethics Commission.
