2012 Congressional Lobby Days

LobbyDay3loMore than 90 AAPD members from 24 states and the District of Columbia participated in the Academy's annual Congressional Lobby Days in Washington, D.C., on March 7-8, 2012. This included members of the Council on Government Affairs, PAC Steering Committee and Executive Committee. Pediatric dentistry residents from programs at Children's Hospital of Colorado, the Ohio State University/Nationwide Children's Hospital, Lutheran Medical Center- Rhode Island program University of California Los Angeles, University of Maryland, University of North Carolina, University of Washington, and Virginia Commonwealth University also participated. Attendees advocated for level funding in FY 2013 of $8 million for the pediatric dentistry Title VII program, and also updated members of Congress on the critical regulatory issue concerning children's dental insurance to be offered in state health insurance exchanges per the Affordable Care Act. Fact sheets used in these visits will be available shortly on the AAPD website.
