Mississippi Chapter of the
American Academy of Pediatrics

About Us


The MS Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is a professional membership organization of more than 300 Mississippi pediatricians, both primary care providers and subspecialists. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the mission of the Chapter is to promote the health and well-being of all children in Mississippi. The MS Chapter AAP is one of the sixty-six autonomous yet affiliated chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics.


Established as a state Chapter in 1934, the Chapter has been a 501c3 non-profit organization since 1991. The Chapter is looked to for guidance in matters relating to child advocacy, legislation and policy regarding child health and pediatric practice, and to provide opportunities for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and others.


Chapter membership is open to all pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pediatric dentists in Mississippi.
