Thank you to the generous supporters who contributed to the Kansas Pediatric Foundation’s Year End Appeal. We met our full matching gift and even surpassed the goal of $25,000! Your contributions will continue to grow the Kansas Kids Fund and the Literacy Endowment so we can keep working to improve child health in Kansas.
The Kansas Kids Fund – Pediatricians in Action grant application is currently open. This grant opportunity is available to KAAP members to address a child health initiative in their practice or community. The deadline of February 28 is nearing, so apply now! Application information can be found here.
The Turn a Page. Touch a Mind.® (TAP-TAM) early literacy program continues to reach children across the state of Kansas. The 695 participating TAP-TAM physicians and medical providers handed out 135,000 books to children at 138 sites during 2019. These books allow the medical providers to assess the development of the patient, discuss age appropriate behavior, and encourage families to read together every day.
