Welcome to the New York Chapter 3 Website

The American Academy of Pediatrics, founded in 1930, unites pediatricians throughout the Americas to ensure for all young people the attainment of their full potential for physical, emotional, and social health. To this end, the Academy dedicates its resources to professional education, advocacy for children, representation of pediatricians, public education, access to health care, and service to children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is composed of over fifty Chapters, organized into ten regional Districts. Whereas most of these Districts cover multiple states, District II consists solely of New York State and serves as the statewide focal point for its three Chapters. Chapter 3 is comprised of the New York City Boroughs of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, and the upstate counties of Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester.

Chapter 3 currently has over 1,600 members, representing pediatricians and pediatric specialists.

 

Our very own NY Chapter 3 Vice President, Dr. Lori Legano, attended the Oct. 17th Lunch 4 Learning press conference.  Please read on for details about the conference as well as Dr. Legano’s statement.

 
Congratulations!
