The Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (WIAAP) is pleased to announce the 2019 election results for the positions of secretary/treasurer and board member at large.

“We are fortunate to have enthusiastic and talented pediatricians in leadership roles for WIAAP,” said Mala Mathur, MD, MPH, FAAP, chapter president. Drs. Kleven and Paradis commence their terms in July, when the chapter board of directors convenes to identify its strategic priorities for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
