on Infectious Diseases was founded in 1990. It enables members who are primarily
interested in pediatric infectious diseases to meet for the purpose of developing
ideas and generating educational forums that will improve the care of infants,
children, and adolescents. The section also serves in a liaison capacity to the
AAP Board of Directors.
The Section on Infectious Diseases contributes
to the AAP mission by providing quality educational programs for both the general
pediatrician and the pediatric subspecialist. Specifically, the section provides
educational programming at the AAP National Conference & Exhibition (NCE)
and, in collaboration with the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS), a
continuing medical education (CME) course.
