Speak for Those Without a Voice! Scholarship Opportunities Announced for the Ohio AAP Annual Meeting

Ohio AAP is striving to make it easier to attend the our 2019 Annual Meeting. In addition to a larger conference space, we have reduced the cost to attend and offer special discounts for joining the Ohio AAP Quality Improvement programs or presenting in Shark Tank Poster Session.

The Ohio AAP is excited to announce a scholarship opportunity sponsored by the American Dairy Association – Mideast to cover your registration fees for Annual Meeting. We particularly invite our members from rural or economically disadvantaged communities to apply.

To apply, please complete this very brief application by July 31, 2019. Three scholarships will be awarded and will cover the registration fees associated with attendance. Ohio Chapter membership is recommended, though not required, to apply.

To apply go to our Survey Monkey link by July 31, 2019.

Our conference will focus on new and expanded topics in advocacy, education, specifically how to be a voice for Ohio’s children. The keynote speaker is Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the pediatrician who uncovered the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan.  Your registration includes a copy of her book What the Eyes Don’t See. Following Dr. Hanna-Attisha is a full schedule of topics and speakers that will transform the way you practice and improve health outcomes for your patients. We know that every dollar counts. This is why we have worked hard to reduce the registration fee to decrease the financial burden and allow for more members of your practice to join us on September 27-28, 2019 at the Hilton Polaris in Columbus.

The complete brochure is located here.

  • Depression, Suicidality and Self-Harm: When to Worry and What to Do?
