The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is a professional membership organization of 62,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical sub-specialists and pediatric surgical specialists dedicated to the health, safety, and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

The AAP DC Chapter's mission is to promote the optimal health and development of children and adolescents of Washington, D.C. in partnership with their families and communities, and to support the pediatricians who care for them.

The Mission of the Committee on Immigrant Child Health is to advocate for the children of immigrants in the District of Columbia, regionally and nationally.
