MONTANA CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS AWARD

MARCH 25, 2014
The Montana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently was selected as the winner of the AAP 2014 Outstanding Small Chapter Award at the annual meeting in Chicago.

“This is a really great accomplishment for our chapter,” said vice president of MT AAP Pepper Henyon, MD, of Bozeman Deaconess Pediatrics. “This national recognition validates the great work we are doing around the state. Over the last few years the chapter has made great strides in working with the approximately 100 pediatricians across the state to develop programs which help them deliver excellent care to their patients as well as improve the health of children in Montana.”

The MT APP’s efforts have focused on improving the numbers of children who are vaccinated, providing education to health care providers on child abuse, developing regional child abuse response teams across the state and advocating at the state legislature for laws that improve the health and safety for Montana children.

The nomination was based on the chapter’s excellence in:
• Strategic Priorities
• Activities (influencing education and participation of other health related organizations in advocacy efforts for children)
• Finances
• Membership Retention & Recruitment
• Governance & Development of chapter leadership

REACH OUT AND READ: SUPPORTING LITERACY IN OUR COMMUNITY

Getting books from the doctor is a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at Bozeman Deaconess Pediatrics. At every regular checkup, children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years receive a new, age-appropriate book to take home and keep. Volunteers read with children in pediatric clinic waiting areas. Pediatricians and family practitioners educate parents about the importance of reading with their children every day.
