On October 28-29, 2022, Ohio AAP will be BACK in-person for our Annual Meeting at the Hilton Polaris Columbus after 2 years of a virtual experience! As an exclusive benefit, we worked hard to provide free registration for Ohio AAP members, residents and staff.

Topic Spotlight:
We are delighted to partner with Pampers/Procter and Gamble to bring Dr. Terri Major-Kincade to Columbus. Her presentation will provide a history of the health disparities in the U.S. and practical solutions for improving both maternal and neonatal outcomes. A strong understanding of the problem will give context and clarity to the solution. Dr. Terri will arm Ohio AAP members with key actions to advance maternal and pediatric health equity in Ohio.
