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.
