What’s your membership story?

All section members are invited to share how AAP membership adds value to their personal or professional life.

As a member of the Section on Critical Care, James D. Fortenberry, M.D., FAAP, found value in education as well as the work to establish critical care medicine bundled codes to ensure appropriate payment. “The small investment in your specialty’s section can bring invaluable returns,” he said.

Dr. Forenberry’s story is among several submissions shared on the right side of every www.aap.org section page.

Members are encouraged to submit stories at http://webapp.rivet.works/collector/aap/section, then share them on Twitter and Facebook.
