AAP Chapter Champion Programs

AAP Chapter Champion Programs have been very effective for disseminating best policies and practices to pediatric health care providers nationwide through the leadership and volunteer networks of chapters. Chapter champion programs are designed to serve as a mechanism to provide technical assistance, tools and resources, and more to pediatricians and other pediatric health care providers in a more direct manner via national AAP staff.

This particular project will facilitate the dissemination of best practices and advocacy related to the implementation of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) asthma guidelines within medical homes at the AAP chapter and/or state level(s).

Program goals include:

David Parry, MD is the Idaho Chapter Champion for NHLBI asthma guidelines within medical homes. Dr. Parry is an allergy & asthma specialist in Pocatello, Idaho. He can be reached at (208) 233-0801. Look for updates from Dr. Parry in future newsletters from Idaho Chapter AAP.
