Each spring, MOAAP conducts an Advocacy Day at the Capitol in Jefferson City. In 2017, over 90 pediatricians, residents, and medical students spent the day meeting with legislators to advocate on behalf of Missouri’s children. We discussed key issues including passing legislation to create a prescription drug monitoring program, educate legislators on the importance of Medicaid and CHIP for children and we continued to educate on the safety of vaccines.
Together, we can make an impact in Missouri!
