Greetings from team Advocators!
We are a group of Superheroes that have united to support the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AzAAP) and pediatric professionals in the battle against the forces that threaten child health and well-being. You have the power to team up with Arizona’s leading pediatricians to Speak Up for Kids!
Our superhero team includes:
Dr. Jason Vargas
Dr. Catherine Riley
Dr. Kristina Wilson
Dr. Sara Park
Our team has chosen to focus our fundraising efforts on Child Injury and Fatality Prevention. AzAAP remains committed to ensuring all Arizona children remain safe from harm and injury. The home environment has always been hotspot for accidents in children, and since the coronavirus pandemic has forced schools to close and families to stay home, there is a higher likelihood of injuries involving kids. There has been an increase in concern by health care professionals about child abuse, drowning, sleep suffocation and other issues related to children being home and out of their regular child care and school settings. AzAAP has long recognized the importance of supporting pediatric professionals in providing important safety and injury prevention guidance to patients and families, and now more than ever, has been working to address many of these issues through campaigns and provider and community education.
We are asking all of our allies and sidekicks from now through October 31st to join this critical assignment by donating to fight for the children of Arizona. Show that child health and well-being is a PRIORITY ONE mission. With your help not even kryptonite can stop us!
