APPD Pediatric Education Groups (PEGs)

APPD Pediatric Education Groups (PEGs) were created as an avenue for APPD members to collaborate and communicate with others who share a common area of interest. PEGs may provide a forum, both at APPD meetings and between meetings, to facilitate informal networking opportunities in a specialized topical area, as well as to provide a platform from which collaborative projects might develop. Scholarly activity is encouraged.

The following APPD PEGs, approved and formed in 2013, would welcome your interest and involvement:
