Thank you Dr. Szilagyi for your inspiring leadership as AAP President during the past year. I am honored to follow you and to continue working with you and our colleagues on behalf of children and families. #PutKids1st.
As my tenure comes to a close, I'm filled with deep gratitude. Witnessing the incredible work of my fellow members this year has been humbling and made me so proud to be a pediatrician. I'm grateful for every one of you as we stand together on behalf of children and families.
Congratulations to new #FutureFAAP members this #MilitaryMatch Day. Welcome to the pediatrics family! #MilitaryMatch2022…
Congress must ensure the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program is included in comprehensive year-end legislation. It’s time all eligible families can receive the many benefits that home visiting can offer. More in my @thehill op-ed:
When this bill is signed into law, it will send an important message to these families at a time when affirmation and acceptance is especially needed. 2/2
Last night, the Senate passed the Respect for Marriage Act, which requires federal recognition of same-sex and interracial marriage. Safe, stable and nurturing families are so important to children’s development and well-being. 1/2
Pediatricians have witnessed first-hand the tragic consequences caused by ingestions of high-powered magnets. The new safety standard will go a long way toward ensuring these dangerous products do not find their way into kid’s hands, preventing serious injuries and saving lives.…

It was an honor to speak with Drs. @davhill and @JPBelinkieMD on the latest episode of the @PedsOnCall podcast about my start in pediatrics, my work in foster care, and my advocacy before Congress. Listen here:
Children can’t vote. But we can and we must because our children’s future depends on it. On #VoterRegistrationDay, register to vote at and remember to #VoteKids.

We mourn with those whose loved ones were injured, killed and traumatized by yesterday’s mass shooting in Highland Park, Ill. during a Fourth of July parade. Gun violence continues to turn otherwise routine childhood experiences into sites of terror and trauma. @illinoisaap 1/4

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.…

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:

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:…
