Our mission is to improve the health and quality of care of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with acute or chronic respiratory and sleep disorders. This will be accomplished through education, policy development and implementation, collaboration with general pediatricians and other health care professionals, encouragement of relevant research, and serving as an advocate and unified voice on behalf of our patients as well as the profession of pediatric pulmonology and sleep medicine.
