Take your Membership Further with ICAAP Committees

ICAAP's Member Committees are key to ensuring the voices of pediatricians in Illinois are leading on the critical issues that are facing clinics and patients across the state. Our committees undertake projects in education, publication, advocacy, and in other areas of child healthcare, well-being and safety. Every one of our committees are guided by principles on anti-racism and bias awareness.
