Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative - NAPNAP

Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative

Here at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, we know that our members are experts in pediatrics and advocates for children. With our Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative (CHPLC), members can expand their knowledge about critical issues impacting their practices and profession. 

The CHPLC is open to all NAPNAP members and meets at 8 p.m. ET via webinar 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

Guest Speakers

  • Oct. 6 – The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly exacerbated the mental health crisis for many children in the United States, and suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people age 10-24. Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (IL-14) introduced new legislation to address the alarming rates of suicide among children and young adults by ensuring health care providers have adequate training and resources to identify and treat mental health issues. Please join us to hear more about this legislation and how pediatric-focused APRNs can help advocate for children and families to address this growing issue. 
  • Nov. 3 – TBA
  • Dec. 1 – TBA
