Pediatric Policy Council

Pediatric Policy Council

The Pediatric Policy Council (PPC) was created to "speak with one voice" and combine the legislative advocacy efforts of the American Pediatric Society, the Society for Pediatric Research, the Association of Medical School Pediatric Department Chairs, and the Academic Pediatric Association.
During the Pediatric Academic Societies' annual meeting, the PPC sponsors an early morning legislative symposium on a current research topic of interest to the pediatric academic community.

The PPC also sponsors the annual pediatric policy plenary at the Pediatric Academic Societies' annual meeting and produces a monthly newsletter that contains advocacy and policy updates from Washington, DC. .

The PPC is a member of the Committee on Federal Government Affairs, American Academy of Pediatrics(COFGA). The PPC has provided a view from Capitol Hill since 1984.
