Equity, Diversity and Inclusion – Mission Statement

“Our mission at AAP-CA2 is to combat discrimination by promoting justice, respect, inclusion, opportunity, and camaraderie in the medical community and the diverse populations we serve. We are committed to anti-racism. We work to eliminate disparities, prejudice, and bias in education, nutrition, healthcare, neighborhood, and society.  We believe in creating, fostering, and ensuring access to a safe, nurturing environment where all children can thrive. We aim to increase the representation of physicians and other healthcare providers from marginalized, minoritized, and oppressed backgrounds within the field of pediatrics and our AAP-CA2 communities.”
