The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics is organized into five key areas that represent the scope of our work and allow for direction and development of future projects. Our five pillars — Child Health, Practice of Pediatrics, Advocacy, Operations and Foundation — help ensure our organization is moving in the right direction while also providing member value.
Each pillar has both Board Members and Ohio AAP Staff assigned, has goals and measurable outcomes and many ways for you to get involved. This structure allows for easier participation by members, by affording them the opportunity to follow an interest, a passion, or solve a practice problem. Members can also serve as an expert or work with a group around their interests without the commitment of a committee.
You may read further information on the Pillar structure in the President’s Message by Andrew Garner, MD, FAAP in the Summer 2014 issue of Ohio Pediatrics by clicking here. You may also read the original introduction of the structure in 2012 by immediate past president Judy Romano, MD, FAAP, during her tenure as board president, by clicking here.
