Mission & Vision

The following core values are the foundation of the Chapter's mission to "improve the lives of children and adolescents in Maine":

We believe all children and adolescents deserve access to quality mental and physical health care. We believe that pediatricians must provide leadership in promoting excellence in health care for children and adolescents. We believe in advocacy for the well being of children and adolescents, their caregivers, and other adults important in their lives. We believe that maximizing the well being of children and adolescents is a sound investment in the future of families and communities.

Our vision is to be the leading authority, advocate, and voice for the health of Maine’s children and for the profession of pediatrics.
