ICAAP advocates on behalf of children and pediatricians in Illinois. ICAAP focuses on issues pertaining to the health and well-being of children, such as access to medical care, Medicaid improvements for physicians and children, immunizations, school health, injury prevention, and environmental health.
If you are interested in becoming involved in advocacy, consider joining ICAAP's Committee on Governmental Affairs. This statewide committee meets several times per year via conference call to discuss pending legislation in Springfield, and plan ICAAP's policy agenda.
