The American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP) was founded in 1930 by 35 pediatricians to serve as an independent forum to address children’s health needs. At that time, the idea that children had unique developmental and health needs was new. The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Join us on this webinar to learn more about the American Academy of Pediatrics, the AAP section on breastfeeding, and the CDC cooperative agreement focused on engaging and training physicians on the topic of breastfeeding.
