AAP President provides update on agenda for children
Date:10/14/2011

BOSTON -- O. Marion Burton, MD, FAAP, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will address attendees at 10:30 a.m. ET on Saturday,Oct. 15, 2011, at the AAP National Conference and Exhibition in Boston.

Dr. Burton will outline AAP efforts to advance its agenda for children and reflect on his year as AAP president. In his talk, Dr. Burton will focus on maintaining the advances made, while not losing ground as budget cuts threaten to dismantle prior successes.

"Physicians and government agencies must continue to work together to ensure the improvements made in the infrastructure of children's health care and safety remain intact," Dr. Burton said.

Dr. Burton will also discuss AAP international efforts, and particularly the Helping Babies Breathe initiative, which is saving newborns in resource-limited countries and helping move toward the Millennium goal of reducing deaths of children under age 5 by two-thirds by 2015.

Dr. Burton will also address AAP's leading role in the evolving science of well child care and health supervision. The AAP has created strategic priorities around early brain and child development and epigenetics, and is leading the efforts of the Head Start National Center on Health cooperative agreement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Head Sta
