Promoting Adult Immunizations in Pediatric Practice – KAAP received a grant from the Kansas Health Foundation to work with practices to promote adult immunizations in the pediatric practice. We are still looking for a couple of pilot sites to participate! Pilot sites will receive a free one hour training with CME and lunch, materials to promote adult immunizations and where they can get immunized in your community, and a stipend. Contact Mel Hudelson for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
