Chapter Champions

A Chapter Champion is a pediatric provider with interest and expertise in a particular area of pediatric medicine. The Champion is an advocate for children and a resource for others in the community. They have knowledge of current guidelines, advocacy, and best practice in each focus area and serve as a link to other providers in the community with a similar interest.

As practicing pediatricians, your experiences can guide your passions and interest – Chapter Champions embody this dedication and enthusiasm for pediatric care!
