Ohio Chapter Wins 2018 AAP Outstanding Very Large Chapter Award

The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (Ohio AAP) just earned the 2018 AAP Outstanding Very Large Chapter— the chapter’s FOURTH consecutive win! The announcement was made at 2019 American Academy of Pediatrics Annual Leadership Forum (ALF) in Itasca, Illinois on March 16, 2019. The chapter was recognized for our Put a Lid on It bike helmet program, Injury Prevention Plus SEEK (Safe Environment for Every Kid), HPV Hackathon and our spread and growth of existing programs and education.

This is truly a record-breaking award. It is the first time a Chapter has ever won four consecutive years they were eligible. The Ohio AAP won for Outstanding Very Large Chapter in 2006, 2010, 2014 and Outstanding Large Chapter in 1992 and 1998. Thank you to our members, Board members, Executive Committee, Program Medical Directors, staff, volunteers and partners that help make this Chapter so remarkable!
