The Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP) is an organization of approximately 2,300 pediatricians in Illinois. Primary activities include advocacy on behalf of children, families, and health professionals in Illinois; the provision of continuing medical education and other resources for pediatricians, pediatric specialists, and other child health care providers; and collaboration with other state organizations and agencies on programs and projects that improve the health and well-being of children.

The ICAAP Committee on Sports Medicine and Fitness (COSMF) serves as a forum for pediatricians and allied health professionals to discuss and become involved in advocacy and educational efforts around pediatric sports medicine.
