The College Speaks
The American College of Pediatricians is a national organization of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the health and well-being of children. The mission of the College is to enable all children to reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being. To this end, The College produces position and policy statements on matters unique to the child and the family. It is the goal of the College that these statements be based upon the best available research, and unencumbered by political or societal opinion. This information will assist parents, policymakers, legislators, and society in advocating for that which is best for children, adolescents and their families.
