APSA Committees carry out a number of different critical functions for the association. 

The mission of the Health Policy and Advocacy Committee is to provide education for American Pediatric Surgical Association members regarding the intersection between public policy and our health care system. This includes the Association’s leadership as it seeks to influence public policy related to the health and wellbeing of children from all socioeconomic backgrounds and ethnicities with the understanding that health equity is of the utmost importance in guiding pediatric health policy.

Advocacy Resources

For the convenience of the membership, the APSA Health Policy and Advocacy Committee has created a list of resources to inform members, non-member professionals, learners and parents about APSA’s position on current advocacy issues in children’s surgical care and also to provide useful resources to provide further information and advocacy opportunities for various children’s advocacy issues, both within and outside of APSA.
