Welcome to AAP Colorado

The Colorado Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (COAAP) has a long history of advocating for Colorado’s children, their families and their healthcare providers. The chapter also creates educational resources and provides professional support. Nearly 500 pediatricians, including general pediatricians, sub-specialists and hospitalists, are members of the COAAP. The Chapter is governed by volunteer officers and a board of directors and is supporters by an executive director.

Mission: To provide an active voice promoting the optimal health and welfare of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults in Colorado; to support the continuing education of health care providers in matters of child and adolescent health; and to encourage participation and fellowship in these areas by Pediatricians throughout the state.

Legislative Update

Advocacy on behalf of Colorado's children and their families is a primary focus of our chapter.

  • We employ a part-time lobbyist in Colorado who works closely with our Board and Legislative Committee.
  • Our legislative liaison system matches local Pediatricians with their district representatives.
  • We facilitate communication between COAAP members and government representatives through email, phone calls, personal visits and providing testimony at the Capitol.
