Resident Education on Advocacy (REACH)

REACH is an advocacy presentation developed for pediatric residents to provide an overview of advocacy at the state level.  The presentation provides an update on legislation that affects children and providers and equips  attendees with tools needed to become advocates for children.

Although developed for residents, it is great information for anyone in learning more about advocacy and is open to all ICAAP members. The two hour REACH training is  held on one Monday a month from 9-11am. Below are the upcoming dates for REACH:
