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, and pediatric dentists in Mississippi.

The Chapter continues to work with the MS State Department of Health (MSDH) to ultimately assist pediatricians in addressing tobacco prevention and cessation efforts with your patients and their families. We are conducting a survey, similar to our baseline survey in 2010, which will assess your current practices with your patients and families in regard to tobacco cessation and control activities. Your responses to this brief survey will help us to understand if or how you offer smoking cessation assistance in your clinic, and understand how to best inform our members about tobacco prevention or cessation tools for use in pediatric clinics.
