Advocacy

Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative

The Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative (CHPLC) is open to all NAPNAP members and meets at 8 p.m. ET via conference call on the first Wednesday of every month from September through May to discuss policy trends and advocacy solutions on national, state and local levels. We invite guest speakers to address timely policy issues affecting our members. In addition, there is an online community to share information on these topics. To be invited to the monthly call, please email healthpolicy@napnap.org.
