The Oregon Pediatric Society is the state chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We exist to advocate for improved health for children in Oregon and support the pediatricians who care for them. We carry out our mission through policy advocacy, communication, programs that support practice change and educating providers who serve children.
