Now Accepting 2022 FPF Advocacy Training Scholarship Applications!

To support Florida’s pediatric residents to expand their knowledge of the federal legislative process and appreciation of the power pediatricians hold to influence the Legislature, FCAAP’s Florida Pediatric Foundation (FPF) is offering six scholarships for residents enrolled in a Florida pediatric residency program to attend the AAP Advocacy Conference, being held virtually March 20 – 22, 2022! The scholarship will cover the registration fee and provide a gift card to purchase food during the conference.

Scholarship recipients are paired with a member of FCAAP leadership for support before, during and after the conference, and are expected to accompany their assigned FCAAP leader to scheduled meetings with Florida Representatives and Senators during the conference. They are also expected to provide a report of what they learned from the conference and how they will apply such knowledge to their participation in future FCAAP legislative activities.

Applications are due by 5:00pm ET February 4, 2022. Full details of the scholarship requirements and the application can be found here.

Residents must be members of FCAAP to apply.

Thank You for Your Support!

Beginning on Giving Tuesday through the end of 2021, the Florida Pediatric Foundation (FPF), the charitable foundation of the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FCAAP), raised funds to help The CLEO Institute continue their work supporting youth climate literacy through a variety of school initiatives and education, engagement, and advocacy efforts.

Our youth will bear the brunt of the climate crisis, and in order to ensure they are resilient, we must prepare them. The CLEO Institute has developed programs that ensure our teachers and students statewide are learning about the science, impacts, and solutions to the climate crisis. CLEO Resilient Schools and the GenCLEO Youth Network are statewide programs that educate, engage, and empower our youth to understand what is happening, become civically engaged, and learn about green careers.

Thank you for helping us support Florida’s kids to be happy, safe, and healthy!
