Not Just for Pediatricians

A recent email confirming Dr. Yellin's participation in a School Health Conference for health professionals sponsored by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics got us thinking about how the AAP is not just for pediatricians, but offers information and resources for parents and families as well.

Their website has articles on topics ranging from immunizations to learning difficulties with innumerable subjects in between. Their 60,000 members are "committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents". They have long urged their members to take an active role in the development of their patients' IEPs.

Whether you are looking for lists of board certified pediatricians in your area or for information on the latest recommendations about flu vaccines, you may want to check out the information available from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
