MDAP Chapter has over 1,200 members statewide. The Foundation of the Maryland Chapter of the American Academy

of Pediatrics is a charitable organization supporting chapter activities that promote the health and well-being of children

and adolescents. The MDAAP initiates and supports numerous programs that respond to the need of children. We were

recently awarded funds to support the Reach Out and Read program of Maryland. The Mental Health Association of

MD has asked for our assistance in developing a survey for pediatricians on emotional health.

This project will improve the diagnoses and treatment of children with mental health problems. We are also working on an autism education and detection toolkit with Pathfinders for Autism. The MDAAP has been recognized across the state, by the national Academy of Pediatrics and other health associations for their insightful and productive public policy agenda. They are a

The leadership of MDAAP has been instrumental in crafting and implementing legislation that has had a positive impact

on lives of children.
