ARAAP Committees

Arkansas Chapter American Acadmey of Pediatrics

Dedicated to the health of all children


One of the best ways to get involved in Chapter activities is to join a committee. The ARAAP recently restructured the committees to better serve our members. Committees meet via video-conferencing, providing the convenience of home or office participation. Most committees have a light workload that involves meeting no more than once per month. 

Please reach out to ARAAP staff with any questions about joining a committee – we’d love your involvement!
