 Join or Renew your ICAAP Membership Now!

Associations like ICAAP gain their strength from membership and membership dues have always provided the foundation for our activities. Any person (physicians, dentists, nurses, allied health professionals, and non-health professionals) interested in the health of Illinois’ children is invited to join ICAAP.  Your membership helps ICAAP to provide the community outreach needed for immunizations, medical homes, oral health, obesity prevention, early childhood development, child abuse and neglect, childhood literacy, and more! Learn more about ICAAP’s activities and the benefits of membership.

Pediatricians, Pediatric Sub-specialists and Pediatric Dentists in all stages of training are invited to join ICAAP and are also encouraged to join the national American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
