The AAP’s National Conference and Exhibition was held last week right in our own backyard in Anaheim, California. It was exciting to see so many Chapter 2 members in person, in many cases for the first time since the pandemic pushed all of our gatherings and meetings into the virtual space. I am also grateful to the leadership of AAP Orange County Chapter 4 for the warm welcome they extended to us!

This week, the AAP led a group of 138 national and state organizations in sending a joint letter to President Biden asking that he issue a National Emergency Declaration around the youth mental health crisis.
