The AAP applauds the @US_FDA’s decision to remove all JUUL products from the market, marking a major victory for public health. Eliminating these appealing and addictive products from the market is a long overdue step to protect youth. 1/2

Thank you @SenatorDurbin for inviting me to testify in front of @JudiciaryDems and to lift up the words of my colleagues in our shared goal to #EndGunViolence in children's lives. I am also grateful to @SenOssoff for using his time to read pediatrician stories.
The number of pediatricians who took the time to tell their stories is a testament to how profoundly gun violence impacts children & how extensively it has transformed our profession. I hope all Senators are moved to enact meaningful policy change after reading their stories.…
At 11:55 am ET, @AAPPres Dr. Moira Szilagyi will share our top funding priorities for Congress, including gun violence prevention research. Tune in live:……

As families struggle to rebound from the impacts of the pandemic, some of the protections put in place for them will end when the public health emergency ends on July 15th. @AmerAcadPeds & @GeorgetownCCF urge @POTUS to extend it. Our op-ed in @thehill:
In a new policy statement issued today, “Eliminating Race-Based Medicine” we call for critical self-evaluation and fundamental changes in the practice of medicine to end long-standing inequities in health care.… 🧵m

The children of Ukraine join the many others around the world exposed to the brutal realities of war and subjected to extreme trauma and suffering. 2/4

Two years have passed since life was upended in ways we could never have imagined. Thank you pediatricians for two years of perseverance during the pandemic and for all you do to keep children and their families safe and healthy.…
The toll of the pandemic has not been felt equally across racial or economic lines, and we must acknowledge these inequities as we help families navigate the right choices to keep themselves and their children safe and healthy. Read AAP's full statement:…
We encourage each family to make a plan that works best for them, while also modeling empathy and discouraging bullying of any child who chooses to mask to protect themselves and their family even when not required to do so. ¾
For some children — including those too young to be immunized and many with special health care needs — masking will still be an important layer of protection for a while longer. 2/4
While @CDCgov's new approach to masks is reasonable, pediatricians urge state and local policymakers to keep in mind the unique needs of children when considering COVID-19 mitigation measures. ¼
To help parents find accurate, trustworthy content about their children’s immunizations, the American Academy of Pediatrics is launching a new video series that answers some of the most common questions parents have about vaccines. Take a look:…

A careful, robust and transparent process to evaluate the evidence for the vaccine in this age group is essential in order for parents to have confidence in offering the vaccine to their children, and AAP is committed to a thorough review of the data. 3/3
AAP looks forward to the opportunity to review the data on the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine for children ages 6 months - 4 years. AAP will also look to the analysis that will be conducted by the @US_FDA and @CDCgov. 2/3
Pediatricians recognize the importance of having a safe and effective vaccine to protect children of all ages, including our youngest children. We know many families are eager to offer this protection to their children and feel frustrated by today’s news. 1/3
In an op-ed that ran today, I talk about the hopeful news of potential COVID vaccine approval for kids under 5. Pediatricians are eager to provide protection for our patients and we’ll continue to follow the data wherever it leads for this age group.
Healing begins in our relationships with patients and families, @AAPPres writes in her latest letter to members.…

Pediatricians have long been raising concerns about the impact of social media use on children’s mental health and development, and we appreciated being able to have a conversation about the opportunities and challenges presented to us by these technologies.
I joined @FrancesHaugen, @AACAP and other AAP leaders in a roundtable discussion today on the role of social media in children and teens’ mental health. The discussion comes after AAP and other groups recently declared a national emergency in children’s mental health.
It is important that all children can benefit from the protection that the COVID vaccine offers. AAP encourages parents to bring any questions they have about the vaccine to their child’s pediatrician. Pediatricians are eager to have these conversations.…

The AAP will continue to evaluate and update recommendations ​about how to care for children and ​share this guidance as quickly as it is developed. You’ll find interim guidance, links to AAP ​COVID-19 Town Hall sessions, and other critical updates here:…
During this time of surging pediatric COVID cases, please know that AAP and I are here for you. Many things continue to surprise me about COVID, but the strength, the resolve, and the unity of the pediatric workforce is not one of them. We will get through this together.
2022 brings numerous advocacy opportunities in Congress to move the needle on key priorities that affect children and families - including bills addressing child welfare and the mental health crisis affecting kids and teens.
During my tenure as AAP President, I will be prioritizing health equity, mental health and wellness issues to support children during this challenging time. I write more in-depth about these issues in my first “Letter from the President” in @AAPNews
As omicron surges, it’s more important than ever for eligible children and teens to get their COVID vaccine and booster shots. Pediatricians can help families make informed decisions. #CallYourPediatrician with questions about the vaccine or your child’s eligibility.…
