Advocacy Committee

The NASPAG advocacy committee advocates for the reproductive well-being of children and adolescents and the provision of unrestricted, unbiased and evidence based practice of PAG.

We collaborate extensively with other organizations, the Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, committees within NASPAG (social media, newsletter, education) and the NASPAG board of directors to develop, share and endorse projects aligned with our shared mission.  We are frequently asked to support advocacy statements in a time sensitive fashion, so participation in the advocacy committee does require email attentiveness and desire to expand writing repertoire. It is a lively committee devoted to optimizing patient care and championing our patients and colleagues.
