Virtual SC Pediatric Residents Day
April 16 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
ICS, along with South Carolina Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (SCAAP), hosted a virtual South Carolina American Academy of Pediatrics Legislative Advocacy Day, known as Pediatric Residents Day on Friday, April 16, 2021.
The purpose is to provide pediatric residents with the tools and support needed to effectively advocate for policies and bills aimed at protecting the welfare of children. The event focused was on three priority health issues impacting South Carolina‘s children and youth: e-cigarettes, childhood vaccinations and impacts on herd immunity, and gun safety. Participants were briefed on each issue before attending a legislative round table discussion. The day ended with a federal update on national issues.
