One of the best ways to get involved in Chapter activities is to join a committee. The Arkansas AAP Committees represent the spectrum of pediatrics and the committees would appreciate your input. The ARAAP recently restructured the committees to better serve our members. The availability to teleconference is now a standard option for those who cannot travel, providing the convenience of home or office participation.
Please take the time to review the various committees and their activities. We will be happy to answer your questions and welcome your involvement.
