Friends of Children Fund Projects Funded May 2023

The AAP Board of Directors approved over a quarter of a million dollars from the Friends of Children Fund to support six outstanding child health projects, addressing crucial topics for children and pediatric medicine. Thanks to generous donations from members, staff and corporate supporters to the Friends of Children Fund, these tremendous projects will be put into action.

Providing Help

The Friends of Children Fund provides help where it is needed the most - giving infants, children and teenagers around the world the future they deserve.

Carolyn Lytle, MD, FAAP

"I started giving to the Friends of Children Fund when I realized the tremendous impact the AAP has on children from all walks of life from advocacy to local chapter support.I can personally touch the lives of children in my state through local ballot measures and by providing care in my practice but a larger, more global effort is needed. The Friends of Children Fund is a great way for me to help ensure that this important work is sustained."
