The Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP) is an organization of approximately 2,000 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.


ICAAP's mission is to promote and advocate for the optimal child, youth and family well-being, and access to quality healthcare while supporting our members. ICAAP committees undertake projects in education, publication, advocacy, and other areas and include not only pediatricians but other health and child welfare professionals. If you are interested in assisting the ICAAP by participating on a committee - or if you would like to help start a new ICAAP committee - please contact the appropriate committee chairperson or the ICAAP office.

Our main office is located at 310 S. Peoria Street, Suite 304, Chicago, IL 60607
